Stem Cells, Ocrelizumab, anything else on the horizon?

Hi all! Kind of new, kind of down, and was wondering if any new research was out there to give me a little hope in finding a cure for MS.

Are stem cells any closer to really being the game changer I here so much about? Ocrelizumab sounds nice, but seems limited since it can only help RRMSers to a certain degree.

Anything else on the horizon I should keep my eye on? Thanks for ...

Been through the gauntlet, does this sound like MS?

So about 2 months ago I woke up with moderate neck pain. I went to the ER during the day. They ran a bunch of tests which came back negative. During the next 5 days I was getting weakness. During the 5th night, I got this bad pressure sensation under my armpits where it felt like someone was squeezing something under them. A few nights later I had an episode where my left shoulder girdle, ...

M.S "now" suggested

I don't know. I went to the hospital back in 2011 for loss ...

I usually get them in random spots about once a month but this is the first time I've had a pain spot come back in the same spot more than once. And this one has been back several times. Scares me it will just stay forever and not go away. Ugh. ...
