Hello, I am a member of a Anxiety Forum. I am looking for information to help people who suffer from anxiety disorders who are convinced that they have M.S.
It seems severe, continuous anxiety causes many physical symptoms in anxiety sufferers.

Hi all,

Just wondering if any of you have experienced a 'numbness' or 'pins/needles' sensation on parts of your body? I'm experiencing these at the moment on the right side of my body...the face, legs and arms.

I've asked for advise from my neuro abt this and his reply was that if it doesn't restrict me from doing things then there's no need to take steroids. He said that it should go away gradually. He ...

Dissappearing twin syndrome

Stranger than Fiction In extremely rare cases of vanishing twin syndrome, two early stage embryos fuse into a single embryo containing two unique sets of DNA. The surviving twin becomes what�s known as a chimera�essentially two people in one body. Chimeras can have different sets of DNA in different ...

Diet/Nutrition/Lifestyle in the CCSVI paradigm

Had a great visit with Dr. John Cooke at Stanford. He's the endothelial researcher there and the man that connected me to Dr. Dake. He's applying for grants to study CCSVI in animals and at the serum/endothelial level. He had some suggestions for MS patients searching for vascular/venous health.

Your impression - does MS research slow down?

I got the impression, that compared to 2006/2007 the outlook and research in the field of MS therapy became less active/exciting.

Back in 2007 vaccination with Tovaxin, NeuroVax or BHT-3009 seemd to become a significant option for MS. The immunemodulatory effects of helminth were discussed and heavy immun-ablation with ASCT, Campath, Daclizumab or HDC were within our grasp.
Stem Cells as regenerative therapy showed some success in the labs and other early stage treatments like ...
