a late observation

I wrote on robbie's post, that my husband is still on abx, but as we have not done the flagyl pulses that much, I haven't had much to say.

That is pretty important, because it means he can sleep (if he isn't stressed and his brain is keeping him awake!). ...

Normal or not normal - temp sensitivity in cheeks?

Need a reality check here. The situation:

Warm, humid climate, so I'm feeling hot, sticky. I go wash my face with cool water. And I just don't seem to feel the coolness on my cheeks. If the water splashes on my neck, or edges of my face, I feel it there. But not on my cheeks/center of face.

Normal? (Maybe cheeks just aren't all that temp-sensitive?)
Pre-menopause? (I'm new to this, hot flashes just started ...

Not MSer, but wondering...

Hi, there,

He has been diagnosed with celiac disease (as has 1/2 of our family) and I surely have it but stopped eating gluten so long ago and am so sensitive to it I can't get the blood test to confirm if I have the antibodies.

Since the neuro ...

At that time, Biogen had confirmed 11 cases of progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy, or PML, since the drug's relaunch in July 2006; Tysabri was pulled from the U.S. market in 2005 because of PML concerns. ...
