    Hi Jeff,

    Until Dr Young gets to your post I can point you to a few sites where you can read up on TM and its research. If you haven't joined the Transverse Myelitis Association yet I strongly urge you to do so. Membership is free. They will send you a questionaire that they use to quantify TM and other myelopathies of the spinal cord (AKA non-traumatic injuries).Sue

    And for everyone who suffers from a spinal cord injury or disorder the PVA site has downloadable files that will help educate you and your primary care physician on how to deal with day to day issues rather than running to a specialist for everything. (Save them for the fun stuff...)
    Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow."
