These links will take you to the Research Channel and specifically to lectures by Sean Mackey. He's a researcher/doctor at the Stanford Pain Clinic. He not only explains pain so very well but shares upcoming hopes for new treatments. One area of research is using functional MRI's and it's very interesting. I hope you enjoy listening to his lectures...I did, and I sure learned a lot also.

Hi Marlee...

It does take a while to watch it but this man is wonderful. Not only is he a doc and researcher but he truly understands fibro and cares deeply about finding ways to help those who suffer. We need many more like this man. Would be fun to have him give an online chat or lecture here, huh? hmmmm....

OMG - I started with tremors bout 2 yrs ago - felt like I was holding onto a low voltage wire. Had an MRI - they thought MS. Results were normal - no MS. The nurse told me Lexapro can cause that. Who knows. Good luck.
