If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

In Memoriam

Copied from http://www.cpn.help.org, where I posted it on Friday:

The 'cellist Jacqueline du Pré died in October 19th 1987. She was born in January 1945, so was only 42. I remember reading a biography maybe just three years before this, at about the same time as I first showed signs of having multiple sclerosisi myself, the disease which caused her premature death. She married Daniel Barenboim, the pianist and conductor in 1967, in Jerusalem, in ...

Progressive MS?

Can anyone please tell me a good site for progressive ms (I'm having trouble finding any real specific information about that type), and if anyone here has that I have a couple questions. thanks

I wonder if that may be the kind he has, because he has been sick since June, and really hasn't let up at all, and it does seem like he is getting worse kindof... he seems more tired, even though now ...

I need to Vent -- Off subject

Ok, I need to vent a little. I just read this article:

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/15345694/

My comment is... How can these people be so narrow sighted? I say How dare them have the nerve to publicly come out and express their anger that some more body parts have been discovered. Do they think that they are the only people in NYC or America? Do they realize that there are people dying from lung disorders because they helped ...

Wavy Lines In Vision

Hello,

I have a question for you. I was making lunch today and noticed a squiggly wavy line on the side of my field of vision that was kind of shimmery. Then it spread to both my eyes on the same side of my vision field. It got a little bit bigger and then stopped and went away.
The whole think lasted probably about ten minutes. It was enough to freak me out. Has anyone ...

Neuroscience Research "News"

The Society for Neuroscience just completed their conference. There are some interesting news releases and other research tidbits.

I’ve been waiting to see more gender/brain research (might be applicable to MS) and it looks like it’s happening.

Research in Gender and Brain Suggest Differences at Cell Level
McCarthy and her team have also recently found that sex hormones induce differentiation of glial cells in the developing brain, resulting in differences in the glial ...

Interferons inducing preexisting autoimmune dz

I was diagnosed with RRMS in 9/02...have been on Betaseron (stopped working) then Copaxone and now Rebif....after 3 months of Rebif now I apparently have some sort of arthritis (still getting workup to see what) My rheumatologist says that the interferons can induce autoimmune processes...he didn't say that I shouldn't take them....guess it's just one of the risks.....just didn't really realize it. I had a history of a type of arthritis that was probably similar ...

B-cell research

A piece of research after Bromley's heart...



Cause of nerve fiber damage in multiple sclerosis identified

UC Irvine -- Researchers have identified how the body's own immune system contributes to the nerve fiber damage caused by multiple sclerosis, a finding that can potentially aid earlier diagnosis and improved treatment for this chronic disease.

The study reveals how immune system B-cells damage axons during MS attacks by inhibiting energy production in these nerve fiber cells, ultimately ...
