I am tired of all the breakthroughs

http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/ms-gene-ubc-1.3612025

I am really tired of hearing about all the breakthroughs in MS that never come to anything. The URL above is a real story, like that of Dr. Zamboni, about a woman who was ridiculed for 40 years. Like Dr. Paulo Zamboni, she had a real personal connection to MS, which motivated her work.

Now she has found a genetic cause for progressive MS. This news will reverberate throughout the medical and scientific worlds. ...

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/to-your-health/wp/2016/06/02/stanford-researchers-stunned-by-stem-cell-experiment-that-helped-stroke-patient-walk/

LOL, I should be happy but this gets me very mad. I have been supposed to be in a study similar to this, but using the good stuff - embryonic stem cells, I have been waiting for the last two years. BUT, the researcher is having trouble getting the money in order for the university to approve the ...

Neurologist frustrations!

So I've had symptoms since March of this year. I've had all the tests except a lumbar puncture everything came up normal. I seen a neurologist today and he literally said to me it's MS or nothing you choose. I was reading some reviews about the Dr and they said he won't be interested unless there is a brain mass. I'm not sure what to take away from that as what I'm experiencing can't be ...

Also in limbo land

Limbo land is so frustrating. I went to a neurologist because of migraines. She did a brain MRI and there were over 25 white spots in my brain. So they did an Evoke something-or-other and a lumbar puncture. Now I'm in limbo land waiting for results. In the mean time, I've had a chronic nerve pain for years that's been flaring like hell, along with back pain and muscle and general fatigue. What makes me ...

Bilateral optic neuritis.

Ok so, I started out with these strange GI issues that eventually led a very intuitive university specialist to consider a neurological disorder. I finally got in with a neurologist and MRIs were done that showed bilateral optic neuritis. The test results came back on Friday. I saw them because of my online access to my hospital records. I have since called my neurologist 5 times trying to get some sort of direction of what ...
