Will You Share Your Relationship Experiences?

I've been asked to write an article for the LDN Research Trust Newsletter on how MS impacts relationships. I'd like to cover it from both the person with MS's perspective and from the perspective of someone in a relationship with someone with MS.

I have my own experience and that of a few friends, but I'd love to hear from others who are willing to share the troubles MS has caused them in relationships as ...

How We Get Fooled

Well, here I am going to talk only about how we get fooled by research on anything but for us specifically CRABS. I've wanted to do this for a long time. I am taking abx, but this is not related so if that's not your thing read on with confidence, it's about trials and how they work. People put huge faith in trials, less in personal experiences. This seems scientific and wise. But do we ...

Figuring out viruses

Hopefully one day in the not-too-distant future they can apply this technology to some of the viruses implicated in MS like EBV and HHV6a.

I've suffered from headaches since I was a teenager. I used to think they were sinus headaches and always medicated myself accordingly. I had a headache for months after my first MS attack. I finally went to ENT who told me my headaches were from muscle tension. This seems consistent with my other symptoms but I would like to hear from someone else who has MS and headaches. Do you have headaches and if so, ...
