hereditary or not what percentage?

Hi I have been reading up on MS and am confused at what the percentage rate is for people who have family history compared to who doesn't.
I have been told by a friend it is unlikely for me to have because no family of mine has any autoimmune disease.

Would love some feedback please?

On a personal note- lost my Dad

My dad (77) passed away yesterday. He went peacefully, unmedicated, and seemingly pain free. He had fought with great strength and determination a 9 year battle with cancer.
The battle became quite hard during the last month.

I loved my Daddy.

Halls Vitamin C Drops – Why an MS warning?

A couple years ago I noticed that Halls Vitamin C drops have a warning on the package that the drops shouldn’t be taken by people with MS. I used to keep them on hand to take if I was tired or felt a cold/sore throat coming on. Plus, it seemed like an easy way to get Vitamin C. Then one day I happened to read the warning label, and I haven’t taken them since. This ...

Seeing an opthamolagist, any hints?

From another thread.
EyeDoc wrote:As an aside: The OCT is a wonderful tool for measuring the thickness of the retinal nerve fibre layer. This is the layer that carries light signals into the optic nerve which allows us to see. OCT is currently covered by insurances and used for diagnosing and following glaucoma patients. There are other disease that can affect this layer, including MS, but medical insurance coverage is not complete. Irregardless, I do baseline OCT ...

Researchers find safer way to make stem cells


By Ben Hirschler Ben Hirschler – Sun Mar 1, 1:11 pm ET

LONDON (Reuters) – Researchers said on Sunday they had found a safer way to transform ordinary skin cells into powerful stem cells in a move that could eventually remove the need to use human embryos.

It is the first time that scientists have turned skin cells into induced pluripotent stem cells or iPS cells -- ...

Antibiotics

Hi All,
I am thinking of starting the abx CAP soon.
My question is what are the symptoms associated with the bacteria dying off? Do the sx manifest themselves as new MS like sx or as fatigue or something else?

What phase of testing is revimmue in?

If I read correctly revimmune is still being tested and they are doing randomized testing? Anyone know what phase they are in and when and if this will be available to everyone?

I find it crazy that we can get tysabri and soon campeth and some other IV drug which in my opinion seem to be far more dangerous yet revimmune is not offered to us in the same way. Can anyone explain to me ...

I Started an MS Blog

Well, it's actually an "MS blog" as well as a "wheelchair blog" as well as a "me blog". But I guess that's what blogging is all about.

Please check it out, and tell me what you think.
