Kegel question for women

Ok, I know this topic is a little unpleasant but I am currently experiencing a lovely UTI and it reminded me to ask this question. In 2004 I had a very bad exacerbation which left me with very little bladder control or bladder capacity. At the time I didn't go on medication for it and eventually it got better but it has never been the same. I was wondering if anyone has ever used a ...

Is there anything you can do to offset post-birth relapses?

Hi all

Health Insurance Denial

Hey guys,

I have a little snit to get off my chest. I was reading threads out here and saw in the little advertisement window at the top a link to "MONTEL WILLIAMS SCLEROSIS" for health insurance quotes. I just wanted to get an idea what policies would cost were I to go out today with my diagosis to get health insurance for my family (I currently have insurance so I was really just curious), ...

Structural insight into the role of myelin basic protein...

http://www.pubmedcentral.nih.gov/articlerender.fcgi?artid=1450171
...This change in MBP conformation would free the epitope for T cell recognition and suggests a mechanism of action potentially initiated by alterations in myelin structure. This hypothesis is supported by a recent study describing antibody enzymes (abzymes) that catalyze MBP in a site-specific degradation (3). The C8 MBP isoform is also more abundant in immature myelin, and results of this study support the hypothesis that myelin structure in MS is developmentally immature (4), contributing ...
