    Last year I wrote about a remarkable MS themed film called When I Walk that was making the rounds of local film festivals. In part funded through a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign, When I Walk proved to be a tremendous success, winning numerous awards and garnering impressive critical praise (click here and here). Though the documentary saw some nationwide and worldwide distribution, it was screened at only a relative handful of theaters, preventing it from being seen by the widespread viewership it so richly deserves.

Relapse is basically an attack of furious ms symptoms, that deteriorate patients health and may cause further damage. In MS, patients usually experience new symptoms or the old symptoms which become worsen in 24 hours. These symptoms remain for several weeks. Relapse is triggered by inflammation in the brain, which affects different part of our bodies. During a relapse, patient might experiences different symptoms such as weakness, unsteadiness, vision…

    For the first time, scientists generated induced pluripotent stem cells lines from skin samples of patients with primary progressive multiple sclerosis and further, they developed an accelerated protocol to induce these stem cells into becoming oligodendrocytes, the myelin-forming cells of the central nervous system implicated in multiple sclerosis and many other diseases.

    Multiple sclerosis diagnosis Diagnosing multiple sclerosis in person is very complicated process, because there is no such single test which can positively diagnose this disease right away. There is a series of test which can successfully diagnosis MS disease. For successful diagnosis of ms, neurologists carry out a number of tests. As many Patients I happen to know over certain period of time , I found that it required thorough physical examination. This examination is based on patient’s complete medical history, neurological examination and multiple test. Medical history: Since…

    A type of immune cell widely believed to exacerbate chronic adult brain diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease and multiple sclerosis, can actually protect the brain from traumatic brain injury and may slow the progression of neurodegenerative diseases, according to research. "Our findings suggest the innate immune system helps protect the brain after injury or during chronic disease, and this role should be further studied," the lead researcher said.

    “National No Garth Day.” I kid you not – that’s what one national radio presenter dubbed today. The country icon, Garth Brooks, sold out 400,000 tickets to five consecutive nights of concerts in Dublin (before his promoter secured a license for the same – but that’s a different topic for another blogger) and canceled all five shows when he was granted permission for only three. Oh, the wailing and gnashing of teeth in the days (which seemed to turn to weeks and months) in every slice of the Irish media pie.

    The times when the humidity has me sweating through two – or even three – shirts in a day, relative temperatures (yes, I realize I live in Ireland, but I’ve acclimatized to the cooler norms here) push my new limits. I’m committed to “do what I can while I can,” but I feel like I’m failing more than I’m succeeding. And it’s got me thinking… Though I’m purposefully living my life in a state of multiple sclerosis détente, I still find it important to set the bar high for myself. Well, I suppose that the bar is only relatively high because my new normal is…
  • MS Symptom Thesaurus: Balance Issues

    Trevis Gleason
    21 Jul 2014 | 8:24 am
    As we continue our monthly offering of a place for you to help describe symptoms, we move into a bit of an odd one. While MS balance issues can, on occasion, be caused directly by the disease, our balance problems can often be due to a combination of other symptoms. While MS balance problems are a real thing unto themselves, symptoms like vertigo, muscle weakness, foot drop, limb fatigue, or even numbness also can cause one to feel off balance. MS-affected balance can make us feel like we’re walking in the wrong shoes or that the wall is actually the only thing keeping us from the floor.

We have had the chance to follow one another’s lives, our loves, and our health. I have seen real friendships blossom in these pages, and we have seen some of our friends, unfortunately, slip into the difficult places of MS.
