The doctor said my brain MRI shows 6mm missing from my frontal cortex (idk) brain. He said it could be MS and not to worry about but wants a brain wave scan? And another MRI in six months.

New report about inside-out genesis

It may be better to read on link page, but i copy and pasted here as well ... sclerosis/

To stimulate myelin repair or remyelination in MS patients, researchers are focusing on approaches that promote OPC migration, survival, and maturation. The past several years of research have produced a number of druggable targets, which fall into two broad categories: molecules that negatively regulate OPC function and molecules that ...

MS Diagnosis

I have been experiencing a wide range of symptoms that fit the profile for quite some years now. I've had a few MRIs done now and each has shown brain lesions.
