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


I am new to the board and MS (diagnosed 11/16/06 within 2wks of my 1st symptom), my question is who do you tell you have MS and when.

A cousin of mine has MS. He is a second cousin ...

New treatments unlikely in the UK

Well, whatever anyone thinks about the so-called "free" health service in the UK, it seems unlikely that anybody using the UK NHS will receive any of the new treatments in the offing because they will all be too expensive according to my neurologist. Great. I went in to see him yesterday and we discussed Tysabri which will definitely not be bought in England since Scotland can't afford it and they're the spendthrifts in our crazy ...

Please help me with my symptoms

Two years ago (I was 28 ), I "think" I hurt my back lifting weights and got a sharp pain in my hand, followed by numbness of two smaller digits and then tingling in hand and arm.

Here's an interesting article about CFS - the experts now say that there is neuro-inflammation, EBV (which causes glandular fever / mono) is the prime suspect, trials are planned (i) using an anti-viral and (ii) using betaferon.

Here's something that I find particularly confusing. Why isn't MS or any other autoimmune disease listed as an exclusion for donating blood under the Red Cross' Eligibility Guidelines ??? This confuses me because adoptive transfer has been a standard technique in MS research for some time. Take for example the myelin reactive T-cells (MRTCs) that have received so much discussion due to Opexa's Tovaxin therapy under development. The MRTCs (assuming they're not rendered division incompetent ...
