MS weakness

I have searched all over webb but I do not really understand what ms-weakness is. Is ms-weakness like you muscle just dies out, with that i mean like you cant even lift 1 kg becuase of the weakness. Or is ms-weakness like it feels heavier, for example before somone could lift 40 kg 4x10 times now he can only lift in that arm 40 kg 2x10 times (is this perceived weakness or ms-weakness?)

New study suggests Hepatitis B vaccine sparked rise in MS

"Whatever the mechanism, because of this unique event in vaccination history, of such a large number of people getting vaccinated against hepatitis B in such a short time, and the resultant dramatic wave of new cases, it appears highly likely that hepatitis B vaccination can trigger MS. The author of this paper actually goes so far as calling this 'an involuntary very large scale experiment carried out on a third of the French population'."

Using no-evidence-of-disease-activity standard for patients with multiple sclerosis

NEDA has become a new goal for the treatment of MS and an outcome measure because of multiple and increasingly effective therapies for relapsing forms of the neurodegenerative disabling disease. But it's unknown what ...

The issue of zoster risk has come to the fore with fingolimod because of two fatal cases. One involved a clinical trial participant who died of a disseminated primary VZV infection in 2008 after taking the drug for 10 months.

MS clusters and rivers?

Hi there,

does anyone know if there is an explanation for possible MS clusters along rivers? They are mentioned for example in this paper:

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/1146497/

I also asked around a polish support group and it seems there are indeed people that live very near to rivers (water reservoirs in general). Me being one of them as well - living ca 200 meters to a river. Is there an explanation ...
