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

hey LC!

i have only just started having a look at LDN because someone was all stoked with it on an introduction string. what an interesting read. how very interesting that it is an immune system BOOSTER! wow. so anyway, deals with correcting issues with the opioid system (which also happens to be affected in cases of anorexia and bulemia... i'm thinking vegan history could also be implicated???). links to glucose preference and insulin production. this is ...

This is difficult to understand (as a layman). I think they are saying that they are starting to understand more about this complex disease. I also get the impression that they are, at last, recognising that the auto-immune model is not a good one. ... ology.html

weird sensation...

Hi folks, I've been wondering about posting this for a while but reluctant to do so as it seems a little odd. For a couple of months I have have an odd sensation in my right leg, usually when i'm sitting. It feels like a strong pulse beat and only lasts for a second or so. I can get a few in quick succession or only one a day. The leg itself doesn't move. Bizarre. ...

Well that makes me very cynical. ...

Multiple Causes / Comprehensive Treatment: Opinion

I'll state my bias up front: I'm in my own "camp," and I think the rest of you are either wrong or only partially correct if you don't share my views on the causes and treatments of MS. That's not to say that my camp is separated from other camps, but rather, that my camp overlaps and encompasses other camps. I don't think there is a single cause of MS although I do think there ...
