European Neurological Society Meeting

The European Neurological Society is in the midst of their annual meeting and it looks like there are numerous presentations on a variety of MS topics.

This is a link to the meeting. And here's a link to search the scientific programme . I just couldn't get a decent link to all the MS abstracts. :roll:

lets move South

Hi All,
If Northern latitudes contribute to MS and Equatorial climes have virtually no MS, what happens when someone with MS moves South? There must be research dealing with this question. My question is a bit self serving, I just spent 10 days near Belize, it was very hot and humid and I have not felt better in 2 years. I literally had a pre-MS life for 10 days. I'm back and so are my ...

Concussion / brain injury update

Well it has been about a month and a half since I took a header off the stairs and ended up in the ER with a brain injury / concussion. Time for an update.

Prognosis is unknown ...

FDA has changed its tune on amalgam fillings

Mercury fillings may harm some- like immunocompromised individuals...

Suggestions needed for too much Pain

Hello All,

I am the son of a woman who has a very severe case of MS. She is practically immobile, has no balance, and struggles with almost every physical aspect of her day. But, like many other people with MS she has one of the best attitudes and is a joy to be around (her strength amazes me everyday). For years she has had a burning nerve pain in her right shoulder that comes ...
