Support, help, advice and information for Multiple Sclerosis. Ask questions and share experiences with people affected by MS.

The MS Blog


Previously known as the “Multiple Sclerosis Research Blog” and “Barts MS Blog”.


The aim is to post daily, commenting on the good, bad and other aspects of MS research. We want to keep you up to date with what’s going on in the world of multiple sclerosis research.


Our audience encompasses MS researchers, clinicians, scientists, students pharmaceutical employees, people with MS, relatives of pwMS and more. So the posts that are written will be aimed at various levels of scientific and medical knowledge. It’s important to us that the blog is inclusive, yet not oversimplified; that we have some posts that will increase the understanding of someone with no knowledge of MS, and some that will inform MS experts of important developments.


NOTE: Professor Giovannoni has moved all his posts onto his “MS Selfie Blog” website, which acts as an archive for his past posts from the MS Blog:

About Us

Founded in 2004, MS People UK is a community website and discussion forum by and for people with Multiple Sclerosis as well as for friends, families, supporters and those interested in this disabling condition.

If you’re newly diagnosed or want to ask about possible first symptoms, or if you’ve had Relapse Remit, Secondary or Primary Progressive MS for some time, a welcoming group of fellow MS sufferers is here to chat with you about MS symptoms, diagnosis and treatments.

The atmosphere is friendly whilst being compassionate, supportive and caring. Members also post about a variety of subjects not related to MS, as well as share jokes, talk about their hobbies, have fun, and more.

The MS People Forum is not responsible for advice or information supplied by members. We suggest you seek medical advice before trying anything.
