I have been a member since last year but have not posted much although do look at what is happening on here daily - best MS site by far.
I was diagnosed in march 2011 after suspected carpal tunnel syndrome which now turns out to be aggressive RRMS, since then I have become progressively worse, I am less than 25% of the man I was, I can just about walk unaided and have many other symptoms including chronic fatigue, I find it hard to believe that all this has happened within a year, is this possible ?
Two years prior to initial symptoms the place I work introduced Lithium, I melt various metals in a small foundry, one particular alloy process requires raw Lithium sticks to be plunged into molten metal of 1140 °C, the fume used to get everywhere although I was provided with a paper face mask!
I can't help but think this may have something to do with my condition as I used to become light headed whenever I used it, if anyone could help me in regards to the potential harm of toxic lithium fume I would be most great full, I couldn't say how much I may have consumed as it was over such a long period.
Sorry for the long post plus I'm not sure if I have posted on the right board !!
I have been on Tysabri for 8 months to no avail.
