Opinions on clinical trial

Hi all,

Red Wine

Everyone must be feeling a bit down after the Tovaxin results. Look on the bright side - they fared better than current medications.

Anyway, we all love the idea of DIY self medication. There has been that Tryptophan and then there was something else before it and later N Acetyl Glucosamine (which I take religiously although it didn't prevent my last relapse) and nicotinamide (protects the axons - take it when you have an attack) ...

Am I the only one that is affected by the cooler weather in relation to it bringing on an "attack"? If I am in air conditioning too long, or if the weather changes to a cool, or rainy day, I will almost always begin to feel my symptoms appear. I know everybody has different symptoms, but I've only heard about adverse heat reactions, and not cold. Guess I'm "special."

Personality aspects in multiple sclerosis

Personality aspects in multiple sclerosis.

MS patients appeared to have a greater need for love in a passive form than normal people, rigid defense mechanisms, difficulty in resolving their inner conflicts either by sublimation ...
