Cause of my MS?

I was talking to my brother and he reminded me of something I hadn't thought about for a while. In 2004 I got very sick. I could barely eat, swallow, or drink. I would break into a very cold sweat and sometimes collapse and almost pass out. I went to see a doctor who immediately sent me to the emergency room. They ran a gamut of blood tests and found nothing and thought perhaps it ...

So I'm thinking

I don't want to go on Rebif and I would rather use copaxone. I know I need to consult my doctor and I plan on doing so this coming week. A big plus for me is the seemingly non-existent side effects associated with copaxone.

Morgellons

OK,

Can MRI cause headache?

I had my first MRi scan this morning and I have had a vicious headache since that painkillers won't get rid of. Is this coincidence or likely to be a result of the MRI?

Worms

Bob,

Here's the deal. Attached is a worm / immune system article. The deal is that you take two weeks off from posting.

My inbox is crammed with e-mails asking me to ban you for good. In my recent poll on the popularity of posters you got a worse score than Harry Z.

Nothing personal Bob, but I've got to think of the other users.
