Odd symptoms -- am I just a wimp?

Hello all!

Calcium level

Hi there,

I have tried to find this information out but had no luck.

Or what level should I be looking for on a calcium blood test?

Retroviruses under hypoxia. The missing link?

This article points out that endogenous retroviruses that are normally latent reactivate under hypoxia (bad blood flow) conditions. Could this explain the relationship between CCSVI and MS?

Human endogenous retroviruses (ERVs) have been found to be associated with different diseases, e.g., multiple sclerosis (MS). Most human ERVs ...

biomarkers guided therapy and cytokines

This review summarises what is known about tayloring MS treatment based in biomarkers. ... 7/abstract


The concept and recognized components of “neuroinflammation” are expanding at the intersection of neurobiology and immunobiology.

Chemokines, no longer merely necessary for immune cell trafficking and positioning, have multiple physiologic, developmental, and modulatory functionalities in the CNS through neuron-glia interactions and other mechanisms affecting neurotransmission. They issue the “help me” cry of ...

Am I crazy? Is this MS or just...normal aging?

Hi everyone. This is my first post here. I'm reaching out to this community because I'm spiraling a bit. I don't have any perspective on this any more and I'm beginning to think I'm crazy, because I've gone round and round in circles on this in the last few days. I was hoping a few pairs of experienced eyes could have a look over what I'm experiencing and tell me whether or not I need ...
