Undecided..Any advice?

Well I have been betaseron for about 5 months now, it has been ok, I just hate how the injections sites look, they are horrible. Well my insurance at work has changed and they will not cover betaseron because I have not been on it for more than 6 months. So I have to choose either Rebif or Avonxe. Which is ok because I was going to talk to my dr when I go back ...

New Guy

Hey everyone, The name is Erich, had my first attack at 18 years old. Misdiagnosed at first, had second attack a year or so later, decided at that time to start on Rebif. I've been on Rebif for a few years at least now, no attacks since I started taking it so I can't complain. Decided I should start expanding my knowledge on everything so I find myself here. Seems like a solid site with ...

New - MS Spectrum

Hello All,

I've been lurking for a while and decided that I'd like some company on this journey from folks who understand.

While I've had unexplained stuff for years, my first episode was a year and a half ago -- life hasn't been the same since.

And yet ANOTHER newbie. Well, it is, what it is...

My husband was just preliminarily diagnosed with MS.

I confess...I KNOW NOTHING about the condition. I'm almost embarrassed to admit that, but I suppose you never bother to learn about something until it becomes a part of your sphere...and then, you can't learn quickly enough!

My husband has had problems with numbness and tingling for years...but the doctors always assumed that was due to his spinal fusion, and a worsening condition.
