Multiple Sclerosis Questions and Answers

Multiple sclerosis raises lots of questions due to its nature. First of all, patients are told that this is a neurological condition, then that it’s an autoimmune disease and an demyelinating condition. That is confusing for most of them. When at all of the above the news that there is no permanent cure is added, this makes patients wonder about the history of this condition. Is it that recent, or simply that difficult to diagnose and treat?

Believe it or not, the first records of a disease with MS-like symptoms date from the 1400, when Lydwina of Schieden experienced these  MS like symptoms. However, the disease was described, categorized and documented in 1868, by Dr Jean Martin Charcot, professor of neurology at the University of Paris. It was he who wrote the first complete description of MS and the changes in the brain that accompany this condition.


MS’s history is still being written, and medical advances in the treatment and finding a cure of this condition are made each and every day. Hopefully, it won’t take long until all MS patients will be able to rejoice over the good news that an effective cure has been discovered by the medical community!

I always believed MS was fairly new. Wow, the 1400's and still no cure. That's crazy.

Agree with Nicole, they seem to be getting two steps forward then taking three steps back... I just hope a cure will be found in my lifetime, i forgot what it feels like to have sensation in my hands and feet.

I read your comments about it taking so long to find a cure and wanting to have sensation back in hands and feet. My sister has MS and has that same issue, not to mention many others (optical neritis, osteopenia, scoleosis, hamstrings flare ups, etc). I hate this dis-ease. And Dr's are not all that available in this field (especially, primary care physicians). As a sibling of someone with MS, I NEED A SUPPORT GROUP!!! It's difficult to not have another to chat with and run things by when care giving for someone with MS. I hope the MS Society puts more $ towards research than other areas. I read that only 20% of the money raised goes to R&D. Not good, at all.

One more mention/question: Are you on REBIFF or another medication? WHich one. My sister's tried two others (name escapes me now) but has been on REBIFF for maybe 3 yrs or so. Thanks S.O.

i think its pretty ODD that documenting of MS began in the 1800s and to date with millions of dollars and chemist that are being paid millions that nothing has been done. To DATE: NO REASON WHY? NO REAL TREATMENT FOR?
Can anyone tell me why?

I'm 63. I've been in pain from MS since I was 11 years old. You do the math. For every positive MS advancement I'll be able to tell you how it's flawed. I've tried it all. Most research is that. Research! $$$! I'm not saying many of these people aren't very educated. They are. Research does NOTHING for MS except get educated people money for doing nothing to help those DYING with and from MS. 
Try it! You tell me a serious "advancement" and and I WILL tell you how I feel it's flawed.  By the way ... There are no serious advancements. NONE! 
Good luck to ya'll,Seppe

However, only a few could succeed in staying within business in the short-run.
Ventrilo and Teamspeak are inherently two extremely equivalent applications.
Beyond a few common interests, many gamers are very diverse, hailing
from different parts of the world and having their own esoteric interests.

I have three sisters with MS (had - actually, one died. My other two sisters and myself were luckier. However at some point in the last 4 years I contracted Lyme's Disease.

We live(d) in NY. There is no blood test to check for MS. The 1400 is just speculation. MS is a diagnosed disease where brain scans will show bright spots indicating brain damage. Other things cause this as well.

Somewhere around 25% of people diagnosed with MS actually have Lyme's Disease. What is wrong with doctor's? Are they all idiots? Testing is cheap and after my Lyme's diagnosis, they (god-like doctors) were unable to cure me. The uncured Lyme's disease is called POST LYME'S DISEASE SYNDROME" - just a bull name for the fact that they can't cure all Lyme's disease with antibiotics.

I researched PLDS and found Colloidal Silver. I bought a $30 bottle of high grade colloidal silver from www.infowars (same stuff as Whole Foods - 30ppm), followed recommendations for dosage and 20 days later I was cured of PLDS. I took another bottle for insurance. Best I felt in years, but my brain damage remained (bright spots), manifesting itself in memory problems, not motor skill problems. True Colloidal Silver is safe and is more effective than antibiotics (was used before antibiotics were discovered).

Colloidal Silver kills all mold, germs, bacteria, and viruses. Look it up.

The pharmaceutical companies do not want you to know bout it.

Many older people suspect vaccines as a possible cause as they are known to produce neurological problems and blood brain barrier issues.

If someone is having MS symptoms, they should be tested for Lyme's Disease. Taking Colloidal Silver will help healthy people. Side effects do not exist despite scare tactics. They report bluing of the skin that is caused by Silver Salt / ionic solutions. Those are different from Colloidal Silver.

I have researched colloidal silver at length. I do not sell anything. I am a Research Engineering Manager, not a doctor. I have a high IQ and a generally low opinion of Doctors and the medical industry If anyone wants to ask me any questions they can contact me at

Too cool!
