Yoga for MS : A systematic review and meta-analysis

Abstract

While yoga seems to be effective in a number of neuropsychiatric disorders, the evidence of efficacy in multiple sclerosis remains unclear.

The aim of this review was to systematically assess and meta-analyze the available data on efficacy and safety of yoga in patients with multiple sclerosis...... Read More - http://www.ms-uk.org/exerciseresearch

Just dx'd-what does this mean?

Ive been waitimg on MRI results for weeks. Unfortunately, I found out today that I do have MS. I'm not letting it get me down though. One thing my dr couldn't explain is why there were only lesions found on my brain and nowhere else. He's sending me to a neurologist though. Is there any significance to only a brain lesion? Is that a good or bad thing? I can't find any info on it.

muscles

From http://sportsmedicine.about.com/od/anatomyandphysiology/a/MuscleFiberType.htm,
Slow Twitch (Type I)
The slow muscles are more efficient at using oxygen to generate more fuel (known as ATP) for continuous, extended muscle contractions over a long time. They fire more slowly than fast twitch fibers and can go for a long time before they fatigue. Therefore, slow twitch fibers are great at helping athletes run marathons and bicycle for hours.

Fast Twitch (Type II)

Because fast twitch fibers use anaerobic metabolism ...

MS Symptoms. I think?

Hello,
I am a 19 year old girl with family history of MS. I was diagnosed with RLS when I was 10 which was super young. About a year ago my upper right thigh was bothering me like it was constantly sleeping and numb. When I went to the doctor he didn't run any tests just told me that I probably have a pinched nerve in my leg and that it'd go away. It did ...

Inability to recognize and convey emotion a symptom of MS

What may be overlooked in relating to and caring for patients with multiple sclerosis is the fact that the neurodegenerative disease sometimes affects a person’s ability to properly convey and perceive emotion. According to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society (NMSS), while there is not enough conclusive evidence to suggest the disease directly affects emotion, it is important to consider that MS patients may either be struggling to cope with the disease, or are physiologically affected ...

Study unexpectedly blocks MS relapses in mice

In multiple sclerosis, the immune system goes rogue, improperly attacking the body's own central nervous system. Mobility problems and cognitive impairments may arise as the nerve cells become damaged.

In a new study, researchers from the University of Pennsylvania and co-investigators have identified a key protein that is able to reduce the severity of a disease equivalent to MS in mice. This molecule, Del-1, is the same regulatory protein that has been found to prevent ...

Obesity a factor in auto- immune diseases

Autoimmune diseases like Crohn’s Disease and multiple sclerosis, in which the immune system attacks its own body rather than predatory invaders, affect 5-20% of the global community. A study published recently in Autoimmunity Reviews by Prof. Yehuda Shoenfeld, the Laura Schwarz-Kipp Chair for Research of Autoimmune Diseases at Tel Aviv University’s Sackler Faculty of Medicine and Head of Zabludowicz Center for Autoimmune Diseases at Chaim Sheba Medical Center, Tel Hashomer, points to the major role ...

Acne and MS connected?

Any connection between skin acne and MS?

I break out BADLY after every time I have a relapse. I thought this was (obviously) due to the steroid treatments but this last time I did not go on a steroid treatment. Although here I am again, very badly broken out. It is the worst on my back.

My skin is never super clear but it is insanely bad right now.

Is this just random or what? ...

24 treated, 24 with an end to symptoms

A lot of people state that Immune issues are not the route of the problem but the study about to be released will challenge that. The immune system may not be the cause but it does the damage. Remove that and what is MS?
