just back from my pre-screening

I just got back from my pre-trial screening. The site I am looking at is in the final stages of hopefully getting approved. I should know by next Monday latest. A lot of things concerned me about the site and trial. I would be the 1st participant at this site. That means possibly not as much experience with Campath as a site that has given many already. Otherwise the site seemed fine. There is a ...

Balo's Concentric Sclerosis

Hello everyone-
I realise that this is an MS website but I was hoping that someone might still be able to give me some help or advice.
Last week I was diagnosed with Balo's Concentric Sclerosis. As it's pretty rare (my Neurologist has never seen it before) I am trying to do as much research as possible. I am also trying to find other people that have also been diagnosed with Balo's- if anyone is ...

Theracycle

I have a new theracycle 100 (the one that does all the work for you). It is a wonderful passive exercise machine. I am no longer physically able to strap my feet in to the foot plates and I was wondering if anyone knows where I could post this for sale.

Something positive

I just wanted to post something positive because I have had a pretty rough year and am usually moaning more often than not.

For the first time in months (maybe more than a year) I had a great surge of energy last night. I did so much when I got in from work - cooked evening meal and an extra casserole for tonight as we will be going out, did a whole bunch of housework ...

White Nails and MS

Hello,

I've been having white nails for around 8 years now. When I say it's white, the entire nail is as white as a ghost. I'm not talking about occasional white clouds that appear in normal persons from time to time. I want to know if it was normal for people with MS or people with low B12 level? I had low B12 in the order of 130 pg/ml when I last tested it.

Thanks, ...

The doctor has ...
