A 10min survey on the psychological impact of MS

Hello,

We are conducting a research study about the psychological impact of living with MS. It is a short 10 minute questionnaire normally completed over the phone and for which we will pay an incentive of 30 Euro for your time.

We have already nearly finished our study, having completed 43 interviews of the 50 required. We require another 7 MS sufferers in Denmark to complete our survey.

If you are able to help please ...

The blood brain barrier and neurons

Although this article focuses on ALS, it's a good summary of the effect of a leaky BBB on the central nervous system. The gene for SOD 1 has also been implicated in MS. The review mentioned at the end of the article sounds interesting: has anyone had a chance to read it?

symptoms without inflammation?

Is it possible to have symptoms without inflammtion?

I asked about this in another thread. I just had an MRI last week which showed no new lesions or active lesions, no enhancement. but I have symptoms that are coming back from an 8 month relapse. I only had 1 month symptom free pretty much.

My neuro feels I am still RRMS, but from what Iread wouldn't this make me SPMS?

Australian study

Yet another example of sloppy journalism: an article light on facts and specifics, and which doesn't seem to know the difference between a study and the treatment.

Neublastin Study

"Biogen Idec in collaboration with scientists at the University of Arizona and Tufts University reported in the April issue of the journal Nature Neuroscience that in preclinical studies, injections of the protein neublastin promoted the regeneration of damaged sensory nerve cells and produced virtually complete, long-term restoration of sensory and motor function. These studies suggest neublastin has potential for further development as a treatment for traumatic nerve injury.
Neublastin, also known as artemin, belongs to ...

My first race on Copaxone

Today I ran my first race, a 5K, while on Copaxone. I noticed no difference between now and my last race prior to the beginning of my treatment. My legs don't feel quite the same as they used to(years ago) but it could just be lack of training. I ran to a third place finish overall(out of 170) around 19:00 on a hilly and windy course.

I had, and have on training runs, the most ...

MS Fatigue and weight gain

Hi Guys

I, like many others, suffer from severe fatigue. It can be totally debilitating and I hate it. My neuro prescribed Provigil (AC, I know your hubby swears by it) and I tried it a few times. All it did was make me dizzy and vomit - so badly that my L'Hermittes set off a temporary but total paralysis in my rt arm (have to have your head bent forward to puke!) and this ...
