Hey Everyone!

Hey Everyone! My name is David Williams and I have worked in the MS and Neuroscience world for about seven years now. Although I'm not a patient, I have worked to help people with MS through community development initiatives. In 2001, I worked with Montel Williams doing numerous online chat sessions, an appearance at the Los Angeles Health Expo, helped launch the Montel Williams Foundation website, and even appeared on his show.

newest memeber :) Please Read

Hello Everyone.

I am a 22 year old male from Toronto Ontario newly diagnosed in June of last year (2006). With no family history of MS it just hit me out of the blue. It started with a tingling sensation in my left hand. Doctors said it was just a pinched nerve and it will go away. About a month later the numbness was still present and started in my right hand.

Began Avonex in June '06. The side ...

I did use Betaseron for 1.5 months and then quit as no advantage was found - only ...
