This Is MS Multiple Sclerosis Community: Knowledge & Support
Welcome to the world's leading forum on Multiple Sclerosis research, support, and knowledge. For over 10 years, This is MS has provided an unbiased community dedicated to Multiple Sclerosis patients, caregivers, and affected loved ones.
So, where are you from? Who's doing the research? What's the source of the questions? And the money? And why are they giving it away?
I never click on anything that just says "CLICK HERE" until I know where the hell it's taking me.
Dx'd with MS & HNPP (hereditary peripheral neuropathy) 7/03 but must have had MS for 30 yrs before that. I've never taken meds for MS or MS symptoms except 1 yr experiment on LDN. (I found diet, exercise, sleep, humor, music help me the most.)
Thank you for your comments, which are certainly reasonable. Additional information about the research is provided on the first two pages of the survey, including contact information for the researchers on the informed consent page.
Briefly, the research is being conducted by faculty at Columbia University who are trying to understand more about how people experience Multiple Sclerosis. A small monetary payment is offered to compensate people for the time it takes to complete the survey. All data are treated with strict confidentiality. Those who complete the survey have the option to donate payment, in which case no contact information is requested.
