back and neck massage causing flair up of symptoms

Even prior to learing about the CCVI theroy related to MS I have always felt a connection between getting a back and/or neck massage and having flair up of symptoms. Once a year I go to a spa with my colleagues and I always have a relapse after. I always found it to be strange and just thought that maybe it was from the heat in the sauna or hot tub but last time I ...

New and wanted to say thanks!

Thank you so much for all you do with the moderation and all the extremely intelligent MS material/research. I am 30 years old and was diagnosed with MS 3 years ago.

David's story update

David is a Campath recipient who set up a website to share his experience. Partly as a result of his diary I went for the Campath option. David has updated his diary - May 2009 update. Thankfully, he has nothing to report and seems to be doing very well.

Italian press

Found this online, it's from an Italian publication. Nothing really new here, but it's the beginnings of the press roll out in Italy. I know enough Italian from my opera training to translate that it refers to CCSVI as hope for a cure for MS, that the researchers do not want to create an illusion, however this recent medical discovery seems to give hope in the fight of MS.

Two Questions

Is it possible to get muscle strength, increase endurance and energy reserves through exercise, such as at a gym, in an MS patient? I will have had MS for two years this August and a lot of it is like trying to get your hands around a ghost, figuring out what you're capable of still doing. Even when I think I know, the cards get reshuffled by the disease and I have to start over ...
