One of my favorite sites is The Whole Brain Atlas. If you click on Multiple Sclerosis, you can watch a time-lapse MRI of lesions changing during a year's time. You get a different view from each angle or "slice" of the brain.

DX with both MS and HNPP (a hereditary peripheral neuropathy) in July of '03, but had probably had MS for at least 30 yrs before that. I've never taken any prescription meds for either MS or MS symptoms (tried LDN for awhile).
