New Member....

Hi, I'm a new member. I'm from Michigan and was dx in about 1992 but had my first flare up ( big time one ) in 1982. The Neurologist thought it might have been Lou Gehrig's Disease. I took a vacation for 3 weeks - they thought I was a bit crazy for the feelings I described. Well, until age of 42 I had nothing wrong at all. Then I went blind in one ...

new member

Hi, my name is Janice, I'm 53, and I was diagnosed two years ago with MS. My feet are numb and I'm a little less steady on my feet. I actually had my first bout when I was 29, but without MRIs, it was diagnosed as a virus. Had a few symptoms looking back, but didn't have anything major until 2 years ago when my sister died of MS. (she had emotional problems and refused ...

MS, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, cancers

I am interested in a simple polling of MSers to get some idea of the co-occurrence of MS with other so called autoimmune diseases and cancers. This would not be a very scientific approach but I am curious if there is a relationship. I do not have MS and do not know anyone personally who does (that I know of). I am involved in drug discovery research at a not-for-profit research center. Our research is ...

I wish you didn't have to read this...

Because if you are, then your young life has somehow been affected by MS.

The good news is that there is hope, and tons of it. And our site is dedicated to providing that hope in the form of information, without a slant towards fattening any given drug company's pockets.

I hope you find our community a useful one, and realize that while it is of course incredibly difficult to deal with a serious issue ...

Team Project: List of every MS Treatment currently in trials

Allright everybody, it is time for a team effort.

This is MS would like to pull together (and maintain) a document showing every drug that is currently in clinical trials for the treatment of Multiple Sclerosis (or its effects, such as fatigue), what phase it is in, who makes it, main mode of action, preliminary results, etc.

While we can get quite far ourselves, this seemed like a great opportunity to get the community involved. ...

Question for Aaron

Hi Aaron....I posted information about the LDN Convention and I also sent you a private message regarding it but have not heard back as of yet. Private message was sent on August 2nd so I'm pretty sure that I should have heard something by now. Is there some other way that I am supposed to get the information regarding the convention to you? Would be nice to set the info on the convention as a ...

Endorphin role in MS

A friend posted me this link. It is not a new study, it dates back to 2003 but it is quite interesting on the possible link between the petide ß endorphin in MS.

A lot of this backs up the Lucchinetti argument (see my boring post on the annal of neurology article on response to Bartlett).

And of course it also relates to LDN. Maybe someone should show ...

To Aaron, re:forum for teens

Hi, Aaron! I'm beginning to think that maybe it is time to do as you suggested and start a forum for teens, and maybe even one for parents of teens. I'm noticing kids on all the boards I use, all of them looking for other kids to talk to, and one has a message board set up for kids, it isn't a very successful one.

I have had two teens to contact me this week ...
