wrist tendonitis?

Discuss. If you've had it, tell me about it. What helped, your general experience, etc etc?

Mine is probably due to computer overuse (I do a lot of writing and use computer for other day-to-day stuff as well), not helped by taking up archery, nor by the right-side weakness in general (neurological - but I think having weak muscles might strain the tendons more?).

Have googled a little bit and gotten some general tips (ice, ...

Types of MS Pain..Please describe yours

I have the most HORRENDOUS time trying to explain the pain I feel with MS.

I have no idea why. I can explain a toothache, headache, backache, but cannot for the life of me explain the pain I feel with MS.

When I do I make no sense. I'm wondering what type of pain your MS causes you and how you best describe it.

Thank you to all :wink: ...

Hormone link - wish I would have known.

Need Help

My wife is in the hospital in a small city with meningitis apparently contracted through her MS baclofen pump. The pump was surgically removed and she is being treated for bacterial meningitis, although they can't grow a culture. Their baclofen withdrawal plan seems very funny to me. She has had a small brain infarct and her kidneys are failing from the antibiotic. She is cycling through different awareness presentations every day.

Question: does anyone know ...

Antibody research

Interesting antibody research ... px?nid=566

I'd like to wish my old friend Lyon a Merry Christmas. We can still use the C work in the UK and haven't been pushed into the Happy Holidays cop out.

Merry Christmas to all the users of the site (even grumpy old Harry Z) and fingers crossed that 2009 will see some more research advances.

MS Measle drug goes to trial

The antiviral agent will be tested on patients with MS.
Here is a link to the study concerning the higher incidence of measle antibodies in ms patients.

Go to new drug category:

At the moment I cannot locate any specifics about the human trial, but perhaps it is too early. If anyone locates the data, please give me a holler.

I suppose there are a million different thoughts ...

Balo's Concentric Sclerosis

Hello everyone-
I realise that this is an MS website but I was hoping that someone might still be able to give me some help or advice.
Last week I was diagnosed with Balo's Concentric Sclerosis. As it's pretty rare (my Neurologist has never seen it before) I am trying to do as much research as possible. I am also trying to find other people that have also been diagnosed with Balo's- if anyone is ...
