What no one wants to talk about

....including me. I'm having issues with bowel incontinence. Pretty embarrasing as you can imagine. Has anyone else ever experienced this and found a way to control it? Do I need to go see a specialist? Thanks. :oops:

Leeches not worms


I've always regarded you as a parasite - sucking the life out of a once great MS website. Even Arron has thrown himself off the Golden Gate Bridge out of desperation. NHE has upped his dose of anti-depressants as his attempts to rein in your posts have failed. But you and your like may be of some use after all. Leeches may be a future weapon against MS. ... ...

Currently asymptomatic with the exception of some tingling in my legs after exercise. Would someone with no disability be allowed into this trial?
