New here. My wife actually has MS. A little history
She started Beta Seron 18 years ago. Her ankles have always been weak - her only real symptom. 2 years ago she added Ampyra and it really helped her walking. 1 month ago she stopped taking Beta Seron for Gilenya.
No side effects thus far.
She takes multivitimins, Fish oil, calcium, Evening primrose oil, among other vitimins. She is 40 but was diagnosed when she was 11.

She was getting tired of being a human pin cushion. She had been praying (literally) for many years for a pill. Now that Gilenya is here, she is so much happier and the Gilenya is at least equal in results to the shot, for her.
