Greetings from Chicago

Postby bigfoot14 » Thu Dec 03, 2009 10:00 am

Hello all

I am the primary caregiver for my wife.

She was Dx in 1988 with RRMS at the age of 33
she has tried both betaseron & copaxone, but developed injection site reactions to both of them, and gave up each of them in less than two years

She has many of the typical MS symptoms: numbness, pain, virtigo, optic neuritis, etc

we gave up on the NMSS years ago, because all they were pushing was drugs.....

We found this site after my brother in law sent us a link to the Canadian news cast (which he found when researching a drug co stock and someone else posted the link and asked how much this CCSVI thing was going to hamper the company's sales of MS drugs)

I've been lurking for about a month and am now ready to jump in

See you on the forums
