  1. Prof G, this is a very cryptic posting. Is it because some many lesions in MS don't cause a relapse? I think you have referred to this before.

    3. Throughout the blog,

      What you can see if just part of what i going on for every relapse there are 10 or more lesional events etc, etc

  2. I'm guessing relapses only tell a third of the story, the other two thirds are the neurodegenerative damage going on untreated.?

    Regards as always

  3. i tink the iceberg emerged part is the damage of withe matter and the submerged part can be refferred to the grey matter damage (visible in 3d RMI )
    my best regards

  4. Is it because you look so well on the outside but you can't see the damage being done underneath

  5. Is it because you are an extremely caring neurologist and your colleagues don't dare/care to see what you see?

  6. Like the iceberg, only 10% is visible.
