Investigators, in a report in the journal Neurology, note that published epidemiologic environmental observations point to infection as a possible causative factor or trigger in the onset of MS.
Ha! they could of asked me. I can ONLY remember 1 cause/trigger for a relapse of my MS, if i ignore the relapses specifically caused by flagyl pulses, as part of the ABX's regimine.
In ten years of symptoms, i can only remember relapses after a cold / flu. It suprises me when i hear of other peoples triggers of stress etc. My main treatment in a way, is to avoid infection at all cost, and hence a relapse.
Although, thinking about their statement about the high-risk time BEFORE an infection. Would this not just be attributed to being non-symptomatic to the infection? Otherwise the MS would have to have ESP to know when you are about to get an infection.
