Worm gene provides possible hope for restoring nerves damaged by MS 23 January 2009

University of Utah scientists identified a worm gene that is essential for damaged nerve cells to regenerate, and showed they could speed nerve regeneration by over-activating the gene – a step toward new treatments for nerves injured by trauma or disease.

Lesions on Brain Vs. Brain Stem

Is there a difference in having lesions on the brain stem vs the brain?

My MRI shows I have lesions in both area's.

From your experience/research do you think there is a difference?

Not that lesions anywhere on the brain are good but I'm more scared of those on the brain stem considering it handles autonomics of the body. Does that make any sense?

MS and Driving....

Being a bus driver, I knew when I presented my dizziness and cognitive dysfunctions to the Dr. I'd be told not to drive.

I was wondering if anyone has had their licensed pulled by their Dr or stopped driving due to MS?

Both the neuro and family Dr. have told me "No driving." Of course, I follow their advice I'd never put anyone else in danger, especially with the way I feel.

I'm just wondering ...
