I had a really hard time with the flu-like symptoms, then I had my biggest relapse (vertigo). We were planning to try for pregnancy not long after, so I quit the Rebif in early 2008.

Anyone in Charleston, SC have a doctor they like?

I've been to two neurologists here in Charleston and am not happy with either of them. I'd like to avoid switching every year, so I'm hoping to find some referrals to other doctors on the area. Anyone have any suggestions?

I have been to MUSC and Tidewater Neurology and do not like either one. So frustrating - I sure miss my doctors in San Diego!
