Could it be that the holes in CNS were easy to repair for being the central plasticity better than the one of the spinal cord and that explain that sometimes disappear in the brain and not in the spinal cord and that was what provokes the real disability ?

I don't think this would be the cause or one of the most important causes. My daughter spend all her life near the see in Spain going to the beach 3 months every year and he has her diagnostic of MS at 20 years old. I think virus's theories are more in the way.

There are some investigations (we need more) showing that the binomial virus-genes have something to tell in MS. Its a pity that MS society's don't give more founds to this issue, i think is a good way to invest.

The politicians are not going to change their mind unless people force them to do it, if they see that we are arranged to punish them with the vote, that this is an important thing, maybe they change about the importance of the health of his citizens. And not only EM people, all kind of sick people....
