Has a doctor ever looked at.....

your tongue?
This was a first for Jeff the other day. The new holistic doc studied his tongue for awhile.
"Hmmmm.....", he said.
"That's interesting. You have a geographic or fissured tongue. It happens in about 15% of the population. Could be genetic, might be related to a virus. We'll have to look into that."

Not to be too navel-gazing, just wondering how many folks have ever had their tongues scrutinized. It used to be ...

NMSS Ohio Valley 150K Bike Run

My brother is raising funds for the NMSS. He did it last year for the first time and raised $10,000 on his own. If you click on this link there is a picture of me with him (I know a bunch out here are starting to share pictures and here's one with me in and I didn't have to do the work to put it there).
I can only hope that everyone with this ...

MS/TM/NMO/ADEM Scientific Conference for Patients

If you have any interest in seeing some scientific presentations on MS/TM/NMO/ADEM, meeting other patients, and hob-nobbing with researchers, then I highly recommend this symposium:

It's in Seattle July 16 - 19, 2008 and is a great opportunity to learn about these diseases, meet others who have them, and talk to the researchers who are working on them. I'll be there and would love it if you would introduce yourself if you see me.

My worst symptom so far is the fatigue. What has helped you with your fatigue?

I have PPMS, a mild case, not yet affecting me physically (legs and arms) too much. The fatigue is kicking my behind.

What have you done to help with this?

All suggestions will be appreciated.

Little son - how do I minimise his risk?

my little son is 2 months old. To my shock I recently read that the tranmission rate to children of a parent with MS is 1 in 10 - whereas I had always read up until recently that it was 1 in 100. 1 in 10 is so high, I am a bit worried about his future. But I suppose he has a 9 in 10 chance of NOT having it.....

What things should ...

Protocol changes?!?!?!

I'm telling you kids that sometimes I think Opexa has a secondary "mission" to confuse us into flares. No kidding!

I'm just about ready for that Visit 52/0 excitement a few of you have already done (May 1 for me). Those of us who have already gotten the paperwork should pretty much be able to swear that the second chunk looks a whole lot like the first chunk only with fewer MRIs.

Then comes this ...

Red Hair

Has anyone ever noticed how many people with MS have red hair? (I went on a freckles rant a while back, now I'm stuck on red hair)
In the general population, I read that 1-2% of people have red hair. I'm convinced that % is MUCH higher in those of us with MS. For those of you who do not have red hair, what about your parents, siblings, grandparents?
I can't find info on how ...
