More WalkAide info needed

I am currently doing a "test-run" on a WalkAide and have it for only 2 weeks. My leg seems to want to swing out rather than the foot pulling up - would this be a sensor location that needs to be played with? Has anyone got info on insurance paying for this devise?

Interesting drug in Alzheimer's trials

I think this drug is interesting because it is an anti-allergy pill that's been approved in Russia for around 20 years, it is neuroprotective and entering phase 3 trials in alzheimer's.

RRMS dx received

I finally (after more messing around than I can be bothered to type) got an MS dx today. Am feeling remarkably cheerful despite this because I finally have some answers.

Pork Plant update

Call me crazy...but I'm hoping that this situation will lead to further understanding of MS. Still more pork plant workers are contracting this brand new type of inflammatory neuropathy. A unique pattern of antibodies has been found in all the workers.
