Thank you txsilver for your time . I have googled myself and not much is going on in this area . The only source of info about " Rheumatic Brain Disease " I found in the book " Multiple Sclerosis , A Neuropsychiatric Disorder " , edited by Uriel Halbreich M.D . According to dr Halbreich and based upon literature and clinical experience , Rheumatic Brain Disease has been proposed as distinct disease .
Thanks again , I will keep looking .
Those are excellent questions and I wish I had the answers for you. I googled it and found many scholarly articles, but they are all over my head. I believe you may best be served by posting your questions is the Ask a Doctor forum which can be found on the right hand side of the Forums main page.
