New Job-ADA

Can a person be denied employment for disclosing their MS in a required medical exam after accepting a job offer?

Its my understanding that under the ADA a person can't be turned away once disclosing something like MS because any judgments have to made on their current condition...not what could happen down the road.

I couldn't find any threads about this topic!

Thanks for any input.

Glucosamine and chondroitin sulphate not better than placebo

Its "just" in Athritis, but there might be some relevance for MS too, as Glucosamine might offer a potential future treatment for MS
In favour of the supplements it has been noticed that the placebo group had some hard to explain "clinically important reduction" in loss of cartilage.

Hello from Ohio

Hello - I'm Rebecca and I'm from Ohio. After almost a decade, I've decided to re-investigate MS for my mom online. She's been on Avonex for about that long, but in the last couple of weeks, she's felt tingling where she hasn't felt it before. I'm interested in anything else that may help her or ease her suffering.

Still searching for answers in the results-
Jeff's SED rate is high, prothrombin time is quick, meaning his blood coagulates fast. His lymphs % is low, as well as WBCs.
What does all this mean? He has hypercoagulation. Sticky blood. Time to take some aspirin.

I was SURPRISED to learn he had never been tested for Hughes Syndrome, or antiphospholid syndrome, which is a differential diagnosis for MS. Could it be his neuro never ...
