Location....

I know I've posted here regarding this before.

I sure wish members would update their profile and include a location. I don't mean you have to be too specific. Maybe just a country!

When posts are made regarding MS topics, it would be helpful to members reading the posts since it is not always disclosed as to location. Example, a post made by someone about a promising research occurring "locally" could mean Australia. I live ...

What are the components used in Aimspro?

i was wondering if anyone knows the components of the goat serum? What part of the blood do they use, or what is the process? I am not able to use whole blood products of any sort, but if it were just a certain component, it may be possible. Also, is it available anywhere but the uk at this time?
Thanks!

I have tried a humidifier and this does help ...

I have since been DX with osteoarthritis which mostly affects my knees and hand/fingers, but sometimes my hips. A Rheumatologist finally did x-rays of my knees and that is how I was DX. ...

Seeking Advice Regarding Second Opinions, HMOs, Etc.

My insurance company is an HMO, and because I am single and self-employed I am essentially locked into it. During the years that my MS wasn't progressing very rapidly, my Neurologist and I got along fine. Over the past year, however, my functioning has declined noticeably. I have been on CRABS consistently for about 6 years, then did 2 months of Tysabri before it was withdrawn. At this point I want to do one of ...
