Combo treatment

Dear all,

Saw this and couldn't resist posting despite saying I'd take a 3 month break.

There is one school of thought that if you treat the early stages of this disease aggressively that you might prevent / significantly delay the progressve stage of the disease.

Virus Info for Bromley


Here's some more info reinforcing (I think) a potential link between viruses and a subset of people with RRMS.

She is still on her Avonex and Lexapro and down from 600 to 300 m. of Tegretol. Has ...

Online collaboration

Aaron, I thought that on a few issues it might be useful if we could have reference pages which people work collaboratively to annotate/update (wikipedia model). There have, for example, been lots different threads with info on blood tests that would be useful in identifying potential contributing factors (B12, Uric Acid, VitD). If we could collaborate on a list of essential and optional blood tests I think that would be huge help for people to ...
