Environmental factors

Doesn't say what they are in the abstract! The Australia case would seem to point to Vit D as one of the environmental factors. But the increase in MS in woman is another puzzle. But the researchers appear to be making some headway.

Hepatitis B vaccine and MS : what about the US ?

Hi all

As I've mentioned it before, I'm french, and the question of the possible link between Hepatitis B vaccination and MS is regularly raised in Pasteur's country. From my point of view, it seems to be a "french-only" concern. My question is : what is the north american opinion about this concern ? Did your neuros give you any information about this ?

The pork thing

Okay, so I can believe that meat workers handling pig brains may catch some disease....

But as for pork causing MS. This is the most ridiculous pile of garbage I've ever heard.

What is on the top of the list for an American cook out??? Hot dogs! Now tell me with a straight face that this causes MS.

If this were true, then EVERYONE would have it.

Where I am - still so confused!

It still seems like you guys are talking a foreign language, but I think I am getting there!

I still haven't had a definite dx - just lots of murmurings of MS from docs. I saw the neuro on 8th Jan and had MRi on 16th (bloody fast for NHS) and I now have to wait until 6th March for results! Although I have not been given a dx, the neuro I saw on 8th ...

To Loobie

Hey how are you doing on the Acetyl-Glucosamine? Send me a messege.

I recently added triple strength Glocusamine Chondroitin and Acetyl-Carnitine. I don't always take them together.

I've got an instinct about when and how much to take these things and it varies. I seem to be doing somewhat better with the alternating combo.

I was just wondering what is happening when one day out of the blue you just feel better. You can notice that you can lift your feet a little of the rug you can pull your knees up in bed you can stand a little longer your head feels clearer you just feel more human. This is with no drugs and no difference in the daily routine. This feeling then passes and it’s back to ...
