Brain Rewired Itself

No MS connection, but interesting that the brain was able to rewire itself.

trauma question

hi does anyone here have trauma associated with the acute onset of their first attack? mine was a good crack on the head in a snowboard accident, on top of pre-existing subacute degeneration of the spinal cord due to chronic cobalamin deficiency.

i am mostly recovered except for pain in my neck at c7/c8, and corresponding sensory problems in my hands.

i would like to know if anyone has looked into chiropractic treatment when you ...

Stem cells

This paper should be posted in the stem cell section, but I thought was worthy of being posted in the General section. I have spoken to two MS researchers in the last week or so - one at Cambridge and the other at the Institute of Neurology in London. The impression I got was that much work was going on behind the scenes and that prop;er stem cell treatments (i.e fully tested - not the ...

more depressed during 48 hours after injection?

Don't know if it has anything to do with losing my job a month ago (and knowing about the possibility for about 6 months) but looking back it seems that for at least the past 2 months I am getting really depressed for about 2 days after the injection. Has anybody else experienced this? I am not taking any antidepressant medication. (Should I be?)

EDSS self assesment

I have never had my EDSS done by a professional. I have read various sites that provide a break down of how to come to an EDSS. Such as http://www.geocities.com/HotSprings/3468/edss-fs.html

But even this information lacks how to combine the scores to one. Anyone know how this should be done?

Or an explanation of what to do with "8. Other function"

New, easy to navigate david wheldon site

Finally, after many months of hinting, David has redesigned his site, to make it much easier to navigate:

http://www.davidwheldon.co.uk/ms-treatment.html

It did start out as just one page but over the last couple of years more pages have been added, then more pages tagged on to those pages and so on. Now everything radiates neatly from the index, just like on my site, so when I suggest someone looks at such and such a page, it ...
