Salk research

An interesting bit in the article is:

"the immune system attacks oligodendrocytes"

I've seen this theory elsewhere. I'm not sure if it means at the same time as the attacks on the myelin sheath, or rather that the destruction of the oligodendrocytes leads to problems with the myelin sheath which then leads to further attacks ??????????

Hearing loss

I wake up this morning and my left ear is ringing/roaring like I went to a ...

Flu Symptoms on Avonex

Hi everyone. It's been awhile since I've posted on here. I just started injecting Avonex again after a seven month break (tonight is actually my first night). After two years of injecting, the flu symptoms and mood swings were getting to me so I stopped. Well in that seven month time frame my left foot eventually became completely numb about 95% of the time. My balance is way off and now my right side is ...

Do y'all find that your Rebif needles have air in them? Do you push the air out before you inject?
