Could MS be caused by a retrovirus?

Could drugs shown to successfully treat HIV also be used to quell MS? To find out, researchers explore remnants of ancient viruses locked with the human genome.

Two new studies are under way to test antiretroviral medications on multiple sclerosis (MS) patients. This research is spurred by a narrowly accepted theory that MS may be triggered by human endogenous retroviruses...... Read More - http://www.ms-uk.org/bacteriaandviruses

Would you agree to a DMD under these conditions?

Hello, good people of TiMS,once again I am on the "general discussion" part of this forum, asking about myself. :S

pediatric MS

I have always seen people talking/ writing about environmental factors like infection with a typical virus, stress, less sunshine etc etc as a possible cause of MS. But do we realize that 2-5% of MS patients are actually children. Any comments????

Does this offer hope for PWMS who have spinal lesions

Does this offer hope for people with MS who have spinal lesions?

Four men paralyzed after bad spinal cord injuries can all move their legs again, thanks to an electrical stimulator.

Astonished researchers say they’d hoped for some result, but nothing like what they got. They think the stimulator is retraining the mens’ nerves to work with the brain again, despite the terrible damage.

“This is wonderful news. Spinal cord injury need no longer be ...

MRI w/out contrast - Can that detect MS?

Hi all,
I'm new to the forum, so excuse me if I'm not suppose to post here... but I'm a 33 yr old female, active lifestyle, non-smoker, and I've been having on/off symptoms now for about 4 yrs. My symptoms are annoying, off/on and just all around frustrating. I've done so many tests/scans that I could keep going on and on about them. I won't bore people with them, as I'm sure some of you ...

Does this sound like on to you?
Hi all,

I am still undiagnosed, and thus is my first post here, but my question is vision-related.

My visual symptoms are what made me consider the possibility that the paresthesia I was experiencing might not be "nothing."

What I have experienced is very hard to describe, and ...

This is what happens without childhood vaccinations...

FYI - this is what's happening in Ohio these days, due to parents' avoidance of vaccines in their school age children -- an outbreak of mumps that's continuing to spread. I'll just quote two articles about it.

“Lack of vaccination helps spread mumps” -- from The Columbus Dispatch, Friday April 4, 2014

More and more kindergartners each year start school in Ohio without having been vaccinated ...

Copaxone for 10+ years?

Looking for those that have taken Copaxone for 10+ years and am interested in side effects that you have experienced. I was diagnosed in 1999 and have been on Copaxone since then (minus being off to get pg and have 2 kiddos). I have been experiencing bone pain for about past 3 years and am trying to determine if this could be a side effect of the Copaxone that started after all this time.

Thank ...
