Winter Blues

Does anyone else have trouble with increased fatigue in late winter early spring? I was only dx two years ago, but it seems like late winter is turning out to be a hard time for me. Anything we can do? I am already taking vit d. I have read that MS does seem to have a natural cycle which matches the seasons? Do we just suck it up and make it through to sunny nice ...

VCV at relapse

I thought this was interesting since this virus has come up before, and this study seems to show that reactivation coincides almost perfectly with relapses. I'd like to understand how and why this reactivation occurs – anyone know?

Leeches not worms

Lyon,

I've always regarded you as a parasite - sucking the life out of a once great MS website. Even Arron has thrown himself off the Golden Gate Bridge out of desperation.
