Multiple sclerosis affects more than 2.1 million individuals worldwide. But there is another disease that affects the central nervous system and is far more common.
Central Pain Syndrome is a neurological condition that causes chronic pain in those who suffer from it. Unfortunately, it’s a condition that often goes diagnosed. In recognition of Rare Diseases Day on Thursday, HuffPost Live featured the stories of several individuals whose lives have been impacted by CPS.
Louise Mowder is one of the many Americans suffering from the rarely diagnosed Central Pain Syndrome, or CPS.

Data from a regional stroke registry suggest that stroke may be shifting from a disease of the elderly to a midlife health concern.
The rate of first stroke among patients age 20 to 54 jumped 12.9 percent in 1993-1994 to 18.6 percent in 2005, according to Brett Kissela, MD, of the University of Cincinnati in Ohio, and colleagues.

RECOGNIZING A STROKE
Thank Goodness for the sense to remember the ’3′ steps, STR. Read and Learn!
Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.
Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:
S *Ask the individual to SMILE.
T *Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A
SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently)
(I.e. It is sunny out today.)
R *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.
If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.
New Sign of a Stroke ——– Stick out Your Tongue
NOTE: Another ‘sign’ of a stroke is this: Ask the person to ‘stick’ out his tongue. If the tongue is
‘crooked’, if it goes to one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke.
.Here is another way to say almost the same thing. Both are good
.This is great info that may save the life of a loved one.

.Click link below for Jim Sensenbrenner comments:
Each year in the US there are:
1.25 million who suffer a heart attack ( 650,000 new events and 450,000 recurrences)
600,000 will who have a stroke (500,000 new events and 100,000 recurrences).
