Human endogenous retroviruses again

I could SWEAR I had posted this last night, but right at this moment it's probably mystifying readers of a forum about using mayonnaise during foreplay. I'll try and remember what I said: something about human endogenous retroviruses beings sequences of viral DNA which have become incorporated into our own genome. Up to this point I had heard that only very few were capable of producing a viable viral particle, but this abstract talks about ...

Has anyone seen any new info on Minocycline?

I was just curious if anyone here had seen any updates on the study in Canada at the University of Calgary with Dr. Luanne Metz, or Dr. V. W. Yong?

I hope everyone is doing ok. I haven't posted here in a while.

Nostalgic reminiscions of a man I used to know.

I once knew a man who was fun to be around. He was happy, motivated and funny. He had a passion for life that was unbelievable. He was full of hope and dreams, plans for the future with family and kids. He would make strangers smile for no reason. He had a vigor for life, a passion for sports and outdoors, and an enchantment with where his life was now and where it would take ...

Should I get a TB test?

I'm calling my neurologist tomorrow but I'm sort of curious right now.

Multiple Sclerosis Journal--Open Access

Hi all

Sage Publications is again offering open access to some journals, including the journal “Multiple Sclerosis”, from now through April 30th. You can register here.

I registered last year when they offered this and was able to use last year’s id and password instead of re-registering.

Happy browsing and reading to all you inquiring minds. :)

GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!

I suppose no one here is getting SSDI, as they probably can't afford an internet connection, computer, etc. It's no wonder I have never heard any replies to my inquiries to SSDI

When my parents pass, I too will lose everything, not to mention control of my body over time.

The main thing is, our beloved country wants me to eat out of trashcans and live in a homeless shelter.
GOD BLESS AMERICA

Does anyone else have trouble with increased fatigue in late winter early spring? I was only dx two years ago, but it seems like late winter is turning out to be a hard time for me. Anything we can do? I am already taking vit d. I have read that MS does seem to have a natural cycle which matches the seasons? Do we just suck it up and make it through to sunny nice ...
