    • Hepatitis B vaccine

      I was diagnosed with MS 10 years ago, I have relapse and remitting MS. Thankfully I have very mild and brief relapses, and I’m not receiving any treatment for my MS.   I have recently met a partner who has told me they have chronic hepatitis B, which has left me with a huge dilemma. If I was to stay with my partner I’d need to receive the Hepatitis B vaccine to safeguard myself, but I’m uneasy with the idea of having the Hepatitis B vaccine as the link between the vaccine and MS is negative. And I wouldn’t want to do anything that could cause my MS to progress.   I’d be grateful if I could hear others experiences with their MS and having the Hepatitis B vaccine please.

    • Computer Mice (Mouses)

      I have a problem where I cannot control my middle finger when I press to he left mouse button with my index finger. Subsequently, I end up right clicking when I want to left click. I am using an Apple ouse at the moment which has a rocker switch that resolves the issue but it's a rubbish mouse in other ways. I'm n a fortunate position in that my employer is happy to pay out for a better one but I've yet to find anything suitable.   Does anyone have similar issues? Did you find a solution and achieve mouse nirvana?

    • Can you have lesions in your enteric nervous system?

      I've recently learned about the existence of our 'second brain' aka the enteric nervous system (inside our digestive system).   I'm currently reading 'Digestive Intelligence' by Irina Matveikova, M.D. and it suddenly occurred to me to ask if you can have lesions in the neural network of the gut and if so, perhaps this is why MRI's of the head and spine sometimes miss MS when symptoms are clearly present?   I'm no scientist but I wondered if anyine here could answer this question or direct it to someone who could?
