    We can be on the lookout for this because it sounds as if it's going to be available soon, though the National MS Society is hedging a bit about just how much they're behind it.

    The girls in the Dentist office today were telling me how far they have come with treatment for MS. They act as though this treatment is going to be a cure. I smiled sweetly!

    You will still need an MRI to get a definite diagnosis. But it may help those who know something is wrong, but have a normal MRI. It may give doctors the ability to start a treatment even if the MRI is clean. We will have to see how it's used, and how much credibility it is given.
