Newly diagnosed with MS in AZ, Hello!

Hello, while trying desperately to find out the source and treatment for horrible migraines, I found out that I had a really bad issue with my neck, C5 and C6 and needed surgery, subsequent MRIs showed that I also had MS. My neurosurgeon at Barrows in Phoenix will not operate on my neck until my MS is under control. I just started Copaxone yesterday. It has taken some time because when all this came out ...

I'm 37, and was diagnosed in October. I t was a normal day in the office and my feet went numb. Although it was annoying, I pretty much avoided it. As days went on, the numbness spread through my shins and eventually all the way up into my stomach and small of my back.
