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

Reg-T-cells may not be the culprit

Regulatory immune cells may not be defective in Multiple Sclerosis
05 September 2008

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic inflammatory disease that causes neurodegeneration, resulting in numerous physical and mental disabilities. It is thought to be caused by out of control immune cells that attack the proteins that make up the protective sheath in which nerve cells are encased.

In addition, it has been reported that a subset of immune cells known as Tregs ...

MS is not an auto immune disease?

Alright! Alright! Enough already.

I am NOT a troll. I'm just to thick-headed to understand this jargon filled article.

some interesting research

Here are links to a couple of interesting findings that could have implications for MS:

Do 68 molecules hold the key to understanding disease?
Why is it that the origins of many serious diseases remain a mystery? In considering that question, a scientist at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine has come up with a unified molecular view of the indivisible unit of life, the cell, which may provide an answer.

New day New surprise.

Another new symptom today. Lump in the throat. I'll head downstairs in a minute to take mag. I wanted to read here first. I've been careless about taking the supplements lately.
I've added quite a few new symptoms in the last few months. Double vision (gone for now), itchy-pin-pricks, butt cramps (not nice to wake up to, but gone for now), and now the lump in my throat. When you add these to the issues ...

activity level and symptoms? tell me more

My question for today is: Talk to me about how activity level and types of activities affect your symptoms? I've seen mention of this in some other threads; it hasn't shown up much in my 'general MS' reading I've done elsewhere except as a vague "rest is helpful" kind of thing.
