Hello from the Motor City

Hello my name is Dave, I am from Michigan and am married for 24 years raising 2 boys 18 and 22. I was dx'd in 1997 with RR. I used to take Copaxone but never thought that it helped.

Hi! New from Canada

Hey everyone!

I'm really looking forward to reading other people's stories, and get and hopefully give some support here. This is all fairly new to me (although I've had some symptoms for apparently a few years and have been passing them off as stress!) Ooops.

Hey Everyone

I am 34 and I was diagnosed with MS in April. I have already tried Solumedrol and intravenous treatments for three days straight which was tough. The first day was horrible they dripped the steroid for a full hour and the side effects hit me like a pile of bricks. The disgusting metallic taste in my mouth was terrible. I also experienced the dizziness. That first night I couldn't sleep a wink and to make ...

Hi all! Have been looking for a community to hang and vent and thankfully found this site! A little about me.

I started on Plegridy, a 2x/month injection of beta-inferon and have had no relapses over the last year! Woot!
