I am considering moving back to Colorado, I currently live in Texas right now for the past 10 years. But I miss the crisp clean air, I miss the snow, I miss .. trees lol, I miss everything. the problem is I don't seem to do as well in the cold as I do in the heat. yeah yeah I know, most people with MS hate the heat.
I am just afraid if I move back my MS will get pissed off and I will be really sick again. I haven't been feeling great since I had my baby over a year ago. Been real sluggish, I get stiff sometimes and acjes all over. I was symptom free for years. I was dx in Colorado after my 3rd relapse. Moved to texas and I was like I never had MS... until this past year.
I found this
Research Projects Currently under Review
Investigating the Relationship between Altitude and Progression of MS Disease using Geospatial and Statistical Methods
National Multiple Sclerosis Society - pilot study
PI: Benjamin Honigman, MD
The North American Research Committee on Multiple Sclerosis (NARCOMS) established a MS patient registry in 1993 for the U.S., which now contains information on 31,800 MS patients, many of whom have been tracked for over 10 years.
According to NARCOMS, of the 132 active patients in Colorado who have consistently reported their data over the last 4 years or longer, 119 (90%) have had 1 or more relapses. Corresponding numbers for Missouri are 87 with consistent reporting and 78 (86%) with 1 or more relapses and for Maryland 60/78 (77%).
By integrating the NARCOMS database into a geographic information system (GIS) and evaluating with spatial and statistical techniques, we propose to determine: 1) the prevalence of MS in Colorado compared to Missouri and Maryland - low altitude states along the same latitude as Colorado, and 2) to determine whether the progression of MS is different in those individuals living at various altitudes.
Unfortunatly ther link is bad
