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

I just like news about cobras...

Stem cells

This paper should be posted in the stem cell section, but I thought was worthy of being posted in the General section.

EDSS self assesment

I have never had my EDSS done by a professional. I have read various sites that provide a break down of how to come to an EDSS. Such as http://www.geocities.com/HotSprings/3468/edss-fs.html

Accidents

I think I could have worked this one out in 5 mins even with a reducing brain. Did they really need to do research on it?
