Is this spasticity?

Having a hard time finding a truly enlightening definition, so here's what I've been experiencing.

Painful sensations in thigh. Tend to move around. Sometimes feels like knee is swollen (bad knee to begin with). Weird sensation on sole of foot. At its worst, weird sensation also felt around elbow of arm on the same side. Tends to be worse during sleep, presumably from lying on affected areas. Muscular tightness in thigh relieved somewhat by stretching ...

Spouses that ALSO have MS

Last week, we started a very interesting thread in the Inroductions section regarding how often we should expect to see MS occur in BOTH a husband and a wife (or significant other). VladFT did an excellent
analysis of the statistics and came up with the expected number of such situations in the USA.

His conclusion:

"The total number of marriages with both partners having MS MUST be less then 114"

The entire thread, and his ...

Aimspro injection. What to expect?

Hi all,

I have managed to get Aimspro, that will be delivered in the comming days.

I was hoping to get some information from someone else who has used it.

Then started this new post:

An overdue update, whilst still waiting for my next MRI scan. I am starting a completely new posting because I seem to spend much of my time directing people to the following information, which can now be found in a separate posting in the Antibiotics section: ...

NEJM articles and editorial

Hi Everyone -

Thought I would point out that the New England Journal of Medicine out today has three articles following up on Tysabri and PML along with an editorial.

I have been using rebif for the past 3.5 months.

Dear all,

The annual ECTRIMS / ACTRIMS get together is taking place in Greece in late September. For those interested I attach a link which sets out the programme. Neuro-protection is being discussed - which is good. As usual the same old companies are sponsoring the event. I particular like the tours that are offered.
