My sons' witnessed me having heat attack while on vacation.

We went to N. Wisconsin for a week, the 14-21st. I can't tolerate heat at all anymore, specifically any type of activity that increases my body temperature.

We went to a flea market, a huge one, a family tradition, just me and my two sons age 24 & 26. After strolling around for about 45 minutes in the sun, I started to feel heat symptoms coming on as the heat rose into the 70's for ...

Scare Tactics

Here is a load of "BS"....

I've never had MJ before, because I don't want to get in trouble, but if it were legal, I'd definitely try it.

Just hit a chord

He has fought a hard battle to keep walking, which he can only do these last 10 years if he hangs onto something and not for any distance. He has shoveled dirt on his knees, laid stone, cut floor boarding, made the bed and anything else he could do from a kneeling position. His arms are strong and his mind is good. I don't want him to only walk in his dreams. I want to ...

Now, 2.5 months later, I can see movement and shapes but really only in dim light. I am still relatively blind in bright sunlight. I can basically now see contrast between light and dark objects.

For those who have endured Optic Neuritis, did you recover your ...

My neurologist told me, that it is hard to call it an ...

Average annualized change in MS parameters


since a long time I'm looking for data in RRMS about the average...
- annualized relapse rate
- annualized new MRI lesions
- annualized change in EDSS

I also asked my neuro about that but he didnt know.

I'm aware of the fact that in RRMS these parameters may change with dissease duration (e.g. 1 or 15 years from diagnosis), age or sex.
So a reasonable way would be to gether these infomation for ...
