Pre-relapse signs....put our heads together?

I'm just wondering if we could all put our heads together to discuss the pre-relapse period....
I've noticed that I have a short phase, just before a relapse, when signs and symptoms happen. I am curious to know if others have a set pattern of these too? Perhaps we might come up with some ideas or suggestions.

Increased bruising (typically ...

Server Disruption (and we're back!)

Sorry for the down time this week, folks. As a preventative measure, our site was moved from an older server to a newer one. The newer one wasn't playing well, and it took about 24 hours for us to get everything back in order.

We're back now, as you can tell. If you see any further issues, please let us know!

Much love,

Growth Hormone

You might find it a strange question that I’m about to ask but it sounds logical to me:

Does anybody here have experience with the Human Growth Hormone, HGH?

I am considering starting myself, and I did some research but I found until now only (positive) experiences of bodybuilders.. On their website you can also read that people with AIDS get HGH too (doses defer), for the treatment of their muscle degeneration.

If HGH helps ...

Is MS spine related?

I went in for my bi-annual bone density test aka bone scan. Even though for the past 2.5 years I have taken a calcium supplement with vitamin D plus two additional vitamin D tablets (2000 iu's each), plus a multi-vitamin containing both every day I still had an additional 4.5% bone loss since the last scan.
