Should I see a neurologist?

I am a 56 yr old registered nurse. About 3-4 weeks ago, I began to develop some odd sensations on the skin of my arms and legs. At times it felt like my skin was cold, at other times, almost like sunburn. Next came numbness and tingling of both my feet and hands. When it was at its worst, my legs felt a little weak---and wobbly. These symptoms seem to be worst at night and ...

First human head transplant planned

Does this sound freaky or what? But – amazing. About the way he views and talks about, especially the spinal column and nerves, blood flow, etc. scary, freaky yes.

Does anybody know if there is any relationship to high eosinophil levels and high ige levels and MS? My doctor is sending me to an allergist this week, but still not convinced that it is an allergy that has been causing my crazy range of issues and pains over the past year....

Still just looking to rule things out I suppose...

inside-out and outside-in models

I reproduce here below an article that I have found with a comparison about the main two families of theoretical models for MS. I suppose that CCSVI would be in the outside-in family, together with the classic models, but also there are some interesting merits in the other explanation. Something inside the CNS (behind the BBB) destroys the BBB. Later the demyelination process happens as the normal theory explains.

Avonex and Weight Gain

I have been on Avonex for a little over 2 years now.

Over the last two years I have gained close to 18 pounds. My doctor says it is not from the drugs but I am not sure.
