2015: A World without MS Researchers?

Dear all,

In mid-October 2004, the UK MS Society held a convention titled '2015: A World without MS?'. Researchers were going to make presentations on how this might happen. I could not attend, but waited for the presentations to be posted on the Society's website. Presentations were posted last week but covered the usual suspects - bladder and bowell problems, fatigue, spasticity, cognition etc, etc. I e-mailed the MS society to find out where the ...

Introducing Myself

Hello everyone!

I'm a new member here, and thrilled to find this site. I'm 31 years old, and I was dx with MS 2.5 years ago. I've only had one exacerbation, but an MRI that showed several lesions and spinal tap to back it up. 6 1/2 months ago, I became a first-time mom to a beautiful and healthy baby girl.

Has anyone noticed bruising at injection site?

Hi Everyone,

Has anyone noticed bruising at your injection sites? I just recently noticed that I have bruises on my arms and on my thighs. It's ugly!

Is there anything I can do to reduce them? As it is I ice the injection sites after I am done.

NMSS Bulletin on Antegren

I just now saw the NMSS's bulletin regarding Antegren that was just posted on their website (dated 11-8-04).

Well, I have to say (for what it's worth), that I approve. I couldn't have worded it better myself for them (given their "leadership" role in MS). :wink:

They basically are doing what I said I was doing just a minute ago. Letting the FDA deal with it. HAH! ...
