Driving

Next weekend I am going to my first ever driver's ed class. Finally, at 28, I decided it's time to get 'er done.

More WalkAide info needed

I am currently doing a "test-run" on a WalkAide and have it for only 2 weeks. My leg seems to want to swing out rather than the foot pulling up - would this be a sensor location that needs to be played with? Has anyone got info on insurance paying for this devise? Would I be better off to wait a few months to see if it becomes covered by insurance? Would love to hear ...

Jeff has been taking DHEA supplements (50mg) daily, so his DHEA was slightly elevated, but what really surprised my friend were his levels of lutenizing hormone and follicle stimulating hormone...off the charts.

Interesting drug in Alzheimer's trials

RRMS dx received

I finally (after more messing around than I can be bothered to type) got an MS dx today. Am feeling remarkably cheerful despite this because I finally have some answers.
