Thanks!

That is pretty much what I heard first of all about the progressive form although other opinions have floated about which have confused me somewhat!
With the toxic form of stringhalts - you say that nerve damage will be caused if not treated/ treated if delayed and this would be permanent. Is there any chance of this damage in turn becoming progressive?
On a slightly related note I was coincidently reading an article the other day about nanoparticles being a new hope in treating spinal damage in the New Scientist:

Annoyingly it is a 'premium article' on the site!

Good info, but I think you mean stringhalt.

RJ, - Although I'm not irritated by the issue, I can not help but be slightly amused. How knowledgeable you seemed to be speaking of something of which you could not even spell. *snicker* I'll leave it be so the slightly cruel side of me and my ever so dry sense of humor can mock you [affectionately] about it. I'm only giving you a hard time, I sincerely hope you don't lose sleep ever this. MUAH!

The answers to your question Dave depends on the individual case, how much damage from the toxin, what occurred from the immune response, inflammation or necrosis & what cell tissues the body chooses to continually replicate over time after the event. Adversely the more prolonged the toxin goes unaddressed the more damage to cell tissue & the harder it becomes to rectify.
Thanks.

The last message you're referring to was altered, removed, (whatever) due to it possibly offending someone. I'm not offended, so I'll let it be. However, I can't guarantee all of my spelling services to you - pity can only go so far and there are only 24 hours in a day. I do admire the fact that you have adhered to the correct spelling - our little lesson went well. (I'm beaming with pride).
PS You know what they say - Small feet...

Actually, I'm uncertain what happened to your post. I was not aware it had been moved. Therefore, I'm not the cause of your upset. However, I trust the other moderators and their judgment on whether or not they thought the post was appropriate. I do agree that whoever took actions should have informed as to WHY, and I will personally speak to them over this.
I try to be very open to other people's opinions, whether they agree with mine or not. I think several other members would agree that this is their personal goal as well. I think it's a bit evident (as stated) that I do believe in giving the other end of the spectrum which some members don't know how to react to. I don't believe everything should agree. It is not my intention to offend nor do I hope it is anyone's intention to purposefully offend. I think an intellectual debate can be a wonderful thing, however, too often people go for 'low blows' as opposed to keeping to clean debating. (I'm not making insinuations, either, by the way). This is where we as moderators must step in to establish some bit of order. Perhaps this could seem as if things are trying to be kept one sided, I do not know. I hope you continue giving your input on different topics; I only ask, like I do with all members, that the topics stay tasteful and with the best intent.
