I like this one because of the lists of symptoms and comparisons...
final call for submissions and nominations........
Please everyone - any more suggestions for this new health page? Of course we can always add to it.....
I like Health Talk *******. It is not unlike this site in that it has several different health issues you can click on and also has a blog. There are live broadcasts once a month I think that have RSS feed. I have that podcast on my mp3 player. The broadcasts are available either by phone or online and you can submit questions to the panel ahead of time.
*The Precise Neurological Exam for NYU Students
This contains links that explains in depth the 7 areas that should be covered in a neurological exam. It explains how each test should be preformed, and it also shows after each test what problems could occur, and what part of the body's system they could be linked to.
*The following website was very helpful for me in understanding the oligoclonal banding issue that was so hard for me to wrap my brain around. I hope it may be helpful for someone else.
*This is my favorite and goes through a very thorough exam. THE NEURO EXAM
*Magnetic Resonance Technology
MR - TECHNOLOGY TIPS, IMAGES, SEQUENCES, ACROYNMS

UNDERSTANDING ADA pub of United Spinal Assoc.
*Home Page for Partners MS Center at Brigham & Women's Hospital, Harvard University:
*Brand new website, The Atlas of MS Database:
www . atlasofms . org
The most comprehensive study of its kind ever undertaken, the Atlas of MS, is launched 17th September 2008 at the World Congress on Treatment and Research in MS in Montreal, Canada (www.msmontreal.org).
The Atlas of MS contains information and data from 112 countries worldwide.
*Tons of archived interviews here, but I found this one very helpful.
Multiple Sclerosis News From Medical News Today
MSIF (Multiple Sclerosis International Federation)
*Accelerated Cure Project for Multiple Sclerosis
The Accelerate Cure site also has a lot of interesting info. They are trying to fund research to understand the causes of MS in order make it easier to find a cure (after six years of idiopathic peripheral neuropathy, i.e. we're clueless as to what is causing your problem and there's nothing to be done about it that isn't completely random, this approach really appeals to me). The have what they call "cure map" documents at
They talk about what is known about MS and genetics, nutrition, pathogens, toxic agents, and trauma, as well as their own research and development of "a large-scale collection of biological samples and data from people with multiple sclerosis, selected other demyelinating diseases, and unaffected controls" for use by researchers (if you live near one of the centers they're associated with you might want to participate in this).
Another worthwhile project (that is easier to participate in because all you have to do is fill out questionnaires) is the North American Research Committee On Multiple Sclerosis (NARCOMS) Project (patient registry) at
Also on the Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers website is their MRI for MS protocol which people ask about periodically: www.mscare.org/cmsc/images/pdf/MRIprotocol2003.pdf
