    Default Treatment for retinal damage in Parkinsons relevant to MS'ers?

    I saw this in a Parkinsons disease research newsletter.

    Not a bio-wonk, I bring this to those who are BWs:
    could this treatment be applicable to MS'ers or others?

    Interesting idea--and I don't know whether it could be applied to MS. My impression is that the damage from Parkinson's is different from the damage occurring in MS, though.

    Sorry I can't be more helpful.

    Hi Renee, I hope they can do something for folks with Parkinson's who have retinal problems from it. I guess it could help us in the long run, also.

    By the way, are you advertising to be a personal secretary and chef or are you saying you want one. I could you these also, but I would add a housekeeper as I am doing my own.

    I would like a personal secretary, chef, fairy godmother, a zillion dollars, peace on earth and a cure for everything.

    Is that asking too much.

    I'll go for that list too but I'd add a personal chauffeur.

    Renee, I don't think that is asking for much at all. After all why not dream big. However, out of all of it I would take the "cure for everything" and then the rest would just fall into place I think.
