If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

Trigeminal Neuralgia

I know it's been a while since I've been here - it's been a difficult few months!

Anyway here I am with a diagnosis of trigeminal neuralgia. I don't want it to be that and I am trying to hold off taking the carbamazepine because of the side effects. It seems that if it's caused by 'MS' there is no surgical solution, just hard core drugs.

I'm not sure what triggered it - I haven't ...

Gut microbe H.pylori might curb multiple sclerosis risk in women

A common gut microbe might curb the risk of developing multiple sclerosis—at least in women—suggests the largest study of its kind published online in the Journal of Neurology Neurosurgery & Psychiatry.

If confirmed in other studies, this might prove the hygiene hypothesis, the premise of which is that childhood infections help to prime and regulate the immune system and ward off autoimmune and allergic diseases ...

Corpus callosum cross-section correlated with MS cognitive decline

A 17-year longitudinal study published online ahead of print in the Multiple Sclerosis Journal found that corpus callosum area (CCA) was closely associated with cognitive decline in multiple sclerosis patients (Granberg et al., 2014).

'e-Dura' Spinal Implant Could Make Paralyzed Walk Again

I personally think this new technology is more for SCI patients that have a specific location of the injury.

Science may soon lead the paralyzed to walking again as a new cyborg-like technology is making waves in spinal cord injury research. Researchers at Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (The Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne) have developed a tiny, ribbon-like prosthetic which has restored movement in paralyzed rats.

The implant, dubbed “e-Dura,” for the ...

Hi,

Got a bad dose of the flu at the moment and was just about to take some night nurse medication when my wife told me the chemist advised again it.

Has anyone else out there ever heard about any reasons why i can't take the medication?

I ...

A little common sense in research

Common sense is not very common nowadays. Specially in the MS research world. At least there are some authors that use it still.

They conclude that "if the initiating cause is poorly understood then curing MS is unlikely".

And this sentence is remarkably important because most research groups are trying to cure EAE or to understand the immunology of the demyelination. And these events are not related at all with the MS starting events nor ...
