Welcome Aboard,

Brenda, Auntie Jane, and Maria

The board moves very slowly, but maybe if enough of us visit regularly, it will pick up.

Having said that, I'll be away for a few days, but will check back in when I return.

Nice to have an international site, isn't it? :o

Hi, I'm Ann from south-east London, England, 47 years old. Diagnosed in 1994 after the birth of my third baby although first symptoms (ON) appeared when I was 21 (but nobody said anything about MS then). I have been married to Andy for 24 years and have three children, two girls 21 and 20 and one son 10. I was on Rebif from May 2003 until Christmas when I decided it really wasn't doing me any favours and stopped taking it. Since stopping the Rebif my mobility has improved and I can now walk (shakily) without my crutches. Before the Rebif I could walk about a mile or so very steadily.

LDN sounds interesting, but how does one go about getting it? Do you need a prescription?

Hi from Amy

Postby Amy » Fri Jan 30, 2004 6:26 pm

Hi All

My name is Amy. I have RRMS. My original attack was on September 21, 1997. My right leg was yucky, and then it went into my left leg. My MRI's showed a big nasty lesion on my spine and 3 little ones in my brain. 6 months later, the spine lesion was gone. The brain ones have remained. Seven years later on September 28, 2003, I had an attack of optic neuritis.

All these years I was on the Swank diet. In the last year, however, I fell off the wagon slightly (I ate half of a dove bar in August...) due to the tragic death of my Dad, who was my best friend. My neuro thinks this brought on this latest attack.

Anyway, my elderly mother recently had a set of MRI's and she has lesions in her brain, which they say looks alot like a demyelinating disease. She denies any MS-like symptoms.

I have a great husband and 2 beautiful babies, ages 5 and 2. I am 44. I hope this MS thing crawls back to hell where it came from, because I don't have time for it.

Be Happy.

Amy

An introduction

Postby crispy » Sun Feb 01, 2004 12:00 am

Hi all, :D

I have been hanging around in the background for a few days and thought it was about time I introduced myself.

My name is Chris and I'm 52 - I was diagnosed some ten or eleven years ago and was retired from my job as a Computer Programmer shortly afterwards.

I have never been told that I fall into the PPMS category but as I have never had relapses, just a continual progression of symptoms, I think that must be it. I have never taken any medication, or been offered any, but I am now pushing my GP to let me try LDN.

I am just about mobile around the house, though my wife Cathy claims that I roll around the walls rather than walk. Balance and fatigue are my worst problems, I consider myself very lucky not to have experienced much in the way of pain that I read others are having, just cramps and tenderness.

That's enough for now, I have to write to my GP again, trying to speed things up.

All the best,
Chris P

Hello! Hope no one minds but I have yet to be diagnosed....I will be 29 yrs old in 9 days! 3 babies...almost 7, 4 and 20 months. Happily married.
I found this site from Montel's site of which I visit when I want to be reassured I am NOT crazy! In my heart I believe I have MS but there has been no clinical proof fond. My Neuro believes it is probably MS. Instead I deal with attacks and no answers! Thanks!!
