Welcome, nice to hear from you, hope you find the site usefull.
I was also diagnosed in 1999 and I also use a cane! Guess what? Also wish they would find a cure....
Maybe they will before we get much worse!
There is a lot of discussion on new treatments currently in trials on this site, so things look optimistic, at least. How are you currently feeling - are you taking any medications or any other sort of treatments?
