Please help me with my symptoms

Two years ago (I was 28 ), I "think" I hurt my back lifting weights and got a sharp pain in my hand, followed by numbness of two smaller digits and then tingling in hand and arm. Tingling lasted about 4 months, but went away. Soon after I started having severe earaches and went to the doctors many times thinking I had an ear infection. They saw nothing and said it could be TMJ.

Exercise has changed my life!

I started exercising on January 2, 2007. I have always made excuses...I don't feel good....I can't, I'm too overweight....my body hurts...I'm too dizzy, etc. I decided that I needed to strengthen my body and the weight loss would also help me feel better.

I use the weight resistance machines for about 45 minutes and walk on the treadmill for about 30 minutes...faithfully, daily. ...

Confused...

Here's something that I find particularly confusing. Why isn't MS or any other autoimmune disease listed as an exclusion for donating blood under the Red Cross' Eligibility Guidelines ???

Take for example the myelin reactive T-cells (MRTCs) that have received so much discussion due to Opexa's Tovaxin therapy under development. The MRTCs (assuming they're not rendered division incompetent ...
