Everyone I know assumes that I will have the same experience. I have no data to support this, but I assume this is unusual.
I certainly don't want to get ms-ier than thou but I have wondered if his neuro handed him the right diagnosis, especially since common tests like Lyme and b12 deficiency were never run. Or maybe he is a copaxone success.

As a newbie, I was shocked to find in the drug propaganda, buried amidst the pictures of women hiking up mountains and doing yoga, that they promise a "29% reduction in relapses". I kept thinking that I want a little more ROI on a daily injection. And those are the results of THEIR studies.
I am happy there's something. I just wish it was better!

So they advertise that you will get a 29% reduction in relapses. So if you get 2 relapses a year, this means you'll end up with about 1.3 relapses for the year after spending over $ 30,000 and suffering from a variety of side effects. What was that you said about a poor ROI?!
