Hi Folks!

I was first diagnosed in 1998, and was immediately put on Avonex. Well, I was on the Avonex faithfully for a couple of years, and still noticed my condition worsening. And for having lapses in insurance I was on and off the Avonex for 5-6 month intervals, up till this last Sept. Just this Year My Neurologist changed me to Rebif, which I have been on since March. I must say I don't miss the ...

Hello!!

Hiya!
In March I got the word that all this craziness I was experiencing was indeed MS. I had several "numb spots" on my hands, feet & legs. I was a bit unsteady, but nothing too dramatic. I saw the neurologist who confirmed what I'd figured out via the internet.

He said that... yup, it was MS, here's 4 BIG binders. Each outlines a different medication. Read through them and pick one. I lean toward ...

Hi all

Hello. im Fred and my fiance was diagnosed with MS april 3rd, this year. We were in a way lucky as a bout of optic neritis brought her to an eye doctor who QUICKLY picked up on the possible MS link and within 3 hrs of her entering his office, we were at a nerologist. (I say lucky because we have talked with so many people who had difficulty with medical professionals not understanding MS...not ...

I am new to this forum

My name is Carrie. After 3-1/2 years on 3 mg of LDN, which I began taking right after being diagnosed with MS, I had a serious relapse. My new doctor is a top MS neurologist. He treated me with steroids and I'm now taking Gabapentin for pain and spasticity. I'm feeling a lot better.

Here's my question. I'm seeing the neuro again at the end of June. He wants to put me on one of ...

Hi I'm new from the UK

Hi there everyone,

I am new here. I was directed to this website from MSRC for realistic views on DMD's. I was dx in Feb 2007 after quite a bad relapse. As others have said many websites sit on the fence with some of the information they give, and as MS is a life changing event, it is helpful to see the good and the bad in the disease from fellow MSer's with millions of ...
