Leeches not worms

Lyon,

I've always regarded you as a parasite - sucking the life out of a once great MS website. Even Arron has thrown himself off the Golden Gate Bridge out of desperation. NHE has upped his dose of anti-depressants as his attempts to rein in your posts have failed. But you and your like may be of some use after all. Leeches may be a future weapon against MS.

Treatment criteria?

Hello,

I'm a pretty infrequent poster, but avid reader on this forum. This revimmune treatment seems to be very promising to say the least. I was diagnosed in 2005 but had symptoms going back to 2000. Currently asymptomatic with the exception of some tingling in my legs after exercise. Would someone with no disability be allowed into this trial? It would be great to stop progression before any real damage has been done.

ps. Best ...

Reiki

Does anyone do it regularly?

Family and friends are raving about it and keeping suggesting it to me (on the verge of pushing it on me) and I am intrigued. But also nervous about it. I'm not sure if I want someone messing around with my energy/electricity considering I have problems with it already.

I'd appreciate hearing your thoughts on it. :)

Right around Thanksgiving, I noticed a tingling/burning in my left leg, and I recognized the sensation as ...
