No lesions on the brain = not MS?


I am so glad I found this site. For years I have felt "crazy" because no one can figure out why I'm experiencing the symptoms I am. It looks like I'm definitely not alone, unfortunately.

Rash & red itchy spots

Hi, I'm having a problem that I don't think any others are having. Or I haven't found it yet. I have a small rash on my forehead and the whole forehead itches like crazy. I also have red itchy spots on my upper body. The body spots I know started with the med. I've put cortisone, coconut oil, and a campor salve on both, they don't help. A Benadril cuts it some.

Homocysteine decreases cerebral perfusion

I think that any discussion of endothelial health and cerebral perfusion is incomplete without considering homocysteine.

Resting brain perfusion and selected vascular risk factors in healthy elderly subjects.
PLoS One. 2014 May 19;9(5):e97363.

    BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Both cerebral hypoperfusion and vascular risk factors have been implicated in early aging of the brain and the development of neurodegenerative disease.

Alzheimer Nitric Oxide NOS2

Understanding the pathophysiologic mechanisms underlying Alzheimer disease relies on knowledge of disease onset and the sequence of development of brain pathologies. We present a comprehensive analysis of early and progressive changes in a mouse model that demonstrates a full spectrum of characteristic Alzheimer disease–like pathologies. This model demonstrates an altered immune redox state reminiscent of the human disease and capitalizes on data indicating critical differences between human and mouse immune responses, particularly in nitric ...
