MRI after 10 months on LDN

Hi all.

On Thursday I got my MRI results. I had a brain and an upper spinal cord MRI last Monday. No new lesions in my spinal cord, 1 lesion went away from my brain, 1 has shrunk and is fading away and 1 new lesion, but I am sure it appeared while I was not on LDN, because the last time I had had a brain MRI was two years ago, March 2004.

How We Get Fooled

Well, here I am going to talk only about how we get fooled by research on anything but for us specifically CRABS. I've wanted to do this for a long time. I am taking abx, but this is not related so if that's not your thing read on with confidence, it's about trials and how they work. People put huge faith in trials, less in personal experiences. This seems scientific and wise. But do we ...
