New scanner

Me, GWA and others, believe that technology will lead to a better understanding of this disease. A new MRI scanner, much more powerful than previous scanners is in operation. The BBC website, health section, has a video of what the scanner can see - in terms of images of the brain. It is to be used to monitor progression in MS. I tried to paste the video link, but this site did not like it. ...

One for Shayk

Sharon,

Here's some good news on the hormones front. I'm going to cheer people up before my 2 week break.

For those new to the site, Shayk is the hormones guru - and you'd have to be blind to not see that hormones plays a big part in this disease (2-3 times the number of women to men get MS, the third term of pregnancy calms the disease down, and the small trial of testosterone ...

Questin for Anecdote

Hey--I have a "curiosty" question for you which may have already been addressed and I have simply missed it! In your posts, you close with:

"Started the Wheldon regime in August 2003, due to aggressive SPMS. Moved to intermittent therapy after one year. Oct 2006 still take this, now two weeks every three months. EDSS was about 7, now no more than 2."

Your current EDSS score of "2"...was this determined by your "MS" doctor? ...

Viruses, Sex and DHEA

Here’s another abstract about viruses, this time, herpes simplex virus type 2, which seems to suggest that people with MS may have more sexual partners than the average Joe or Jane, particularly in London. :roll:

Herpes Simplex Virus Type 2 in MS
HSV-2 seroprevalence in London MS patients compared with London blood donors was significantly greater irrespective of age, but the MS seropositive rate was ...

Am I thinking to much??

I like to think I'm a "semi"normal person. Today however, I thought to myself, "I wonder if everybody thinks about their MS as often in a day's time as I do."

When I wake up, I lie there. For that first few precious seconds I really don't feel like I have anything wrong. Then I move. Spill my water on my way to shutting off the alarm clock, not being able to feel the tag ...
