Arron would it be possible to make it so all the members could post pics with their posts so we could be closer. I think seeing one another would bring a personal touch to this great web site. People with M.S need that personal feeling instead of that far away feeling we get when we leave the neurologists office, thx. rob

New Diagnosis

Hello everyone,

I'm was diagnosed with MS on June 20. It's been a real shock, because although I've had problems with extreme fatigue, weakness, muscle aches, twitches, blurred vision, dizziness, and difficulty with concentration and memory, and have been worked up for everything under the sun in the last five years, (or so I thought), nobody ever mentioned MS. I went to the doctor in June with what I thought was the worst sinus headache ...

Desperate for any way to stop the disease's progression, the former teacher was the first user of Deskar, an investigational drug developed by Dallas pharmacologist Solomon B. Margolin and tested by neurologist Dr. Jonathan E. Walker, medical director at Neuroscience Centers in Dallas.

Now Moore, who had to use a ...

Cladribine

I recently received the following invite to apply to take part in a clinical trial and was wondering if anyone had either heard of it or had any views on it.
