New search engine: Cuil

For lack of a better spot to post this, I put this here: This week I heard about this new search engine created by three former Google employees. It is www.cuil.com and is self-described as having 3 times more than Google. Also,

I posted a book review that might be of interest

Okay, it's not the greatest written review, but for those who don't go to the reading nook forum, I think you might be interested in the book... The Lyme Disease Solution. It's a good complimentary read for people who do the diet/nutritional supplements and/or antibiotic regimen.

New MSer here

I have not been Dx yet, but have soooo many of the signs and symptoms of MS that I stopped counting them. The worse is the peripheral neuropathy in the shins of my legs as well as the pins and needles in different parts of my body. I am a mess.

do not step on a duck

Three women die together in an accident and go to heaven.

When they get there, St. Peter says, 'We only have one rule here in heaven:

Don't step on the ducks!'

So they enter heaven, and sure enough, there are ducks all over the place.
It is almost impossible not to step on a duck, and although they try their best to avoid them, the first woman accidentally steps on one.

Along comes St. Peter ...

IVIG - not effective

Intravenous immunoglobulin in relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis: a dose-finding trial 28 July 2008

OBJECTIVE:

Several studies have reported a reduction of relapses after the long-term administration of IV immunoglobulin (IVIG) to patients with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS), but they were mostly small and differed in terms of predefined outcome variables and treatment regimen. We therefore set out to test two different doses of a new formulation of immunoglobulin termed IGIV-C 10% for suppression of both ...

Hello

Hello fellow PWMS and people who love them.

I am a forty-something female living with RRMS some 16+ years. My primary symptoms are balance, sensory issues, lower body strength and ON. I walk, sometimes with a cane and sometimes not.

My hubby and I work from home. It's a huge relief to me after battling bowel urgency issues for years. They went away when the stress did, though.

We have 5 grown children (his) and ...
