.ExternalClass .ecxhmmessage P {padding:0px;} .ExternalClass body.ecxhmmessage {font-size:10pt;font-family:Verdana;} Dear Dr Zamboni, Dr Calude Francheshi, Dr Schelling, Dr Sclafani, Dr Beggs, Helen Yates (MSRC)

The results from a survey relating to posture in people with ms has revealed some very interesting patterns in the onset of new symptoms and relapses.

We would all like to hear your views on the results at Thisisms, and I am sure at the Multiple Sclerosis Resource Centre.

Dear Helen, if you could include a link to the original poll on your site and / or suggest a similar poll for New Pathways Magazine with a link from your website we could test the results. If we could involve a University with a view to publishing a peer reviewed paper based on both results it would prove to be a very valuable contribution to understanding how altering our sitting and sleeping posture can have a tremendous affect on ms symptoms.
