This Is MS Multiple Sclerosis Community: Knowledge & Support
Welcome to the world's leading forum on Multiple Sclerosis research, support, and knowledge. For over 10 years, This is MS has provided an unbiased community dedicated to Multiple Sclerosis patients, caregivers, and affected loved ones.
I started a feverish search of this site, because so many other sites are all drug (sorry.. prescription) related. Because I believe in a holistic approach, I needed to find people of like mind. I am 55 and we believe my first symptoms occured (if MS is an auto-immune disorder) 30 years ago and 17 years ago with real venom. So I have relapsed and gotten better until three years ago. None of the four nero types I have seen can agree on anything except what I don't have and that my symptoms are odd. My osteopath finally agreed, "if it walks, talks, smells and acts like a duck... it is a duck." So. I guess I am a duck with MS. I have four grown (are they ever) children and a significant other who keeps me in check on those bad emotional days. I am currently seeking a medical provider who is holistic and has LOTS of experience with MS. ... preferably on the east coast. That's me.
