Closer to a blood test for MS

Neurofilament light chains (sNfL) are pieces of neurons that appear when they get broken. It seems that they appear in blood when MS attacks.

It is not specific to MS, but at least it serves to monitor the damage. It is much more realistic than the previous walking tests and EDDS scores that we had before.

Possible MS symptoms

Hello, I am an eighteen year old who has been dealing with a variety of health issues for the last four or five months now. In January, I went to see my doctor with chest pain and tightness.

Ibuprofen instead of aspirin for flushing

It started out as tingles on my scalp and then eventually the entire side of my face and half of my tongue went numb. I never noticed that my face had a droop but I sure felt like it did. I was driving when this happened and my mother advised me to ...

Hello, does anybody know if Nodict has still the same good benefits for MS with LDN than a couple of years ago? Because I saw that for a couple of years, they stopped selling it, but now finally is here.
