I have a question for those of you who are using antibiotics. The more I read, the more hopeful I am, but then I get discouraged thinking about how few doctors are on board with this-- especially for treating patients early in the RR stage of MS. I'm not comfortable with ordering them online without the support of a doctor. So, I'm curious did most of you:

Go to a doctor armed with information, ...

Devics disease

I assume this subject has come up before but I thought it may be worth a re-visit. More than a few in my local MS chapter have been re-diagnosed with Devics and not MS.

It may be worth some investigation for a lot of "diagnosed as MS" patients.

I wish I had known about this day about MS held at Cedars-Sinai (Los Angeles). I would certainly have gone.

I wonder if the 'celebrity guest' was Montel Williams.
