Re: Link between Mono and MS
Ive also never had Mono. There is no definate answer on whether or not Mono or the Epstein Barr Virus can later cause MS, however there are enough people in the country with a history of EB or Mono, who have later developed MS....studies are being done all the time.
I also agree that in general, there are allot of questions about child hood diseases, immune system issues earlier then MS presents, and even genetics....Jayhawk is 100% right about his final comment: if they knew what caused MS, we would be closer to a cure!
Lets hope someone gets that answer in our lifetime!
