An excellent video and one that I want to share with the world.
How may I get a copy of the video feed, Multiple Sclerosis affects men and women differently, for my MS Related Website?

I had my first "suspected" atack in 1952, recovered, had some 3 or 4 attacks over the next 30 years, then started taking Premarin after a hysterectomy in 1982. I didn't have another episode until last year, which was the first time I was definitely diagnosed. Is it possible the Premarin was protecting me?

When were you diagnosed? What was your first symptom?

Can anyone suggest a support group. I have a very dear close friend that has MS and I would like to help him out more but I dont fully understand MS and how it affects a person.

Good article & information, even though it's a bit of a downer since brain atrophy is one of my big fears.

Question regarding "Men with MS become more severely afflicted, perhaps because of a shortage of testosterone".

The article didn't mention the cause of the low testosterone. Has anyone heard if MS causes a drop in testosterone? Or is it just from normal aging?

My oldest son was diagnosed on his 22nd birthday with MS. He is 24 1/2 now. He won't take his meds but he has been symptom free lately.

I fear I am of like mind with your son. I'm 27, feel fine and start treatment next month. I don't want to because the side effects will make me feel worse when I feel good now.

It's possible the Premarin did help....
They think hormones do affect MS, especially during pregnancy.
