Seeking GP in San Francisco/Bay Area, CA.

Hi folks,

I have "clinically isolated syndrome," which translates loosely into one bout of Optic Neuritis and some numbness and, well, you know the drill.

My GP isn't terribly interested in exploring anything like root causes, Lyme disease, etc. He said I should take it to the UCSF MS Clinic (I have an appointment with them but they're hard to get to and slow to respond). He also mentioned casually that he doesn't keep up ...

Question in pregnant period

I have a question in mind from long time ago, how is possible to a pregnant woman recover (during this period) most of her problems caused by MS if these problems are derived by a destruction in the myelin sheet? It has no big sense; if there is a hole, there is and how could it disappear? Is the sheet remielyneted during a short period and returned to the old status in few days?
