If you already had your big blood draw

I go in at 1pm EST today for the big blood draw. How do you feel afterwards? I used to give blood regularly but only weigh 107lbs. I've never had an issue giving but LifeBlood told me they were going to take the pint plus 20 vials. That equivocates to 1.5 pints. I'm used to giving a "blood light" which is less than a pint since my weight is under 115lbs. The blood draw hasn't ...

A Smart Guy on Our Side

There's quite a bit of background, but near the middle there's some detail on the research he's doing.

A rising star

Twenty-two-year-old Fulbright scholar Joseph (Joey) Oved came all the way from the US for an academic year at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot to research an animal model of multiple sclerosis (MS) - even though he has never met anyone in the throes of the autoimmune disease.

MS hug?

Anyone ever have a MS hug? This was one of the first symptoms of a flare up. It all started with a little numbness in the toes and feet. Then it moved up one leg. To the point that I could walk but wasn't sure were my feet where. Then it skipped over my waist line and went from my belly button to under my chest. Now when it got that far is when it ...

JH has my records!

Hi everyone,

I'd like to thank those of you who have shared their experience of the HiCy treatment.

Carrie at JH received my records on Friday. I'm very "excited" - okay, it feels weird to think that I "want" to have chemotherapy and that I'm excited about doing this.

Some people in my life, including my neuro, thinks this is a drastic move. Of course, my neuro makes no sense - in one breath he ...

Well, "cheerleader" mentioned I should post here I am!

I recognize some names here from another hi!

This is long...but I realize as I sit here, nearly 4 months into this out-of-the-blue random diagnosis....I will share...

Let's see - I'm new to ThisIsMS and MS altogether.

On December 22, 2007, the right side of my face started feeling weird - within a few days, it was entirely numb from chin ...
