    interesting that this starts with an acute infection in mice. That isn't present in human MS, is it?

    They have apparently really looked into what triggers relapses in MS - and infections do and stress can - and other things don't. Interesting that some periods of pregnancy appear to be good for MS and others bad - which I think is true for CFS. Here is some information on triggers....from Wikipedia

    triggers of relapses are interesting--thanks for doing the search for me (I was lazy last night because it was late). I was interested in initial onset, too.

    WebMD says,
    I found an interesting case report of atypical onset of MS with silent coeliac disease and autoimmune hepatitis; they're saying "inflammatory immune-mediated damage of the CNS triggered by gluten could not be excluded" and MS-like disease with MRI abnormalities is a small subset in coeliacs.
