Questions

Must be my lucky week,

At the end of last week a question I posted to the expert on the UK MS Society website was answered, on Monday I had a £1,000 win on the Premium Bonds, and today I see that my question has been answered on the Canadian MS Society website. And I work full-time!

Relapsing/Remitting, what the?

Last weekend during a search of the internet I came across something that someone named "MSWillow" had written on "thisisms" a couple of years ago and it referred to relapsing being due to damage to the myelin and remitting being due to repair efforts of the body.
