Different perspective on cause of MS

Here's a researcher after the hearts and minds of ThisIsMS. I've never heard of this way of looking at MS before, and I'm not convinced, but it's good that some researchers are being more creative.

Solumedrol

I need to understand this whole solumedrol thing. I am having my first major exacerbation in almost 5 years since my diagnosis. I realize how lucky I am that I have not had to have Solumedrol since thie first go round. I blame it on my being not so lucky as to having to have had 3 surgeries in 2006, with the last being this past November. I believe that is what triggered this flare. ...

Even if you only look at the financial cost, and ...

newest memeber :) Please Read

Hello Everyone.

I am a 22 year old male from Toronto Ontario newly diagnosed in June of last year (2006). With no family history of MS it just hit me out of the blue.

Shortly after that ...
