Is there any connection with a positive ANA and MS?

Hi~I am wondering if there is any connection with a positive ANA and having MS? Also wondering about elevated liver enzymes (or auto immune liver disease)? How about Iron deficiency Anemia?

Are these common things among the MS diagnosed?

I look forward to hearing from you all~

Copaxone and Lipoatrophy - when to stop?

Hi
for those of you who don't know me, been dx with MS 10 years. First 5 years frequent severe relapses, classified as an "interferon failure" on Rebif after 5 years.

I have migraines, fatigue, body hurts to touch (doc said it is like fibro...but not) I have morning stiffness, and after any activity stiffness. In the last year I have lost vision and in the past had a "curtain" of gray over vision on hot days. This year I ...

Greetings from an Italian researcher

Hello everyone. Let me start by saying that I do not have MS. But I am a researcher, working on immunology for years. I am not a clinician and I've always conducted my research on rodents. I have to admit to you that I was in the middle of a crisis: experiments not working, which make me wonder why I even do research at all. Then I thought of patients, people that may benefit from ...
