Newly Diagniosed

Hey! I was diagnosed 2 weeks ago and did 5 days of Solu-Medrol last week. I met with my neuro yesterday and I have to decide which long term treatment to try. I am really confused and would love any recommendations. The choices he gave me are Avonex, Copaxone, REbiff, Beta Seron, Gilenya, Tectidera. I don't want to do Tysabri.

Went to see neurologist again and couldn't understand the ...

Newly Diagnosed

Hi everyone,

My name is Katey, and I am 18 years old. I was officially diagnosed with MS a month ago. This is my first time on any kind of MS support group/blog.

My MS journey started a few months ago. I was sitting in my college dorm room talking on the phone one Saturday, when the entire right side of my body went numb. There was no loss of motor control or function, but ...

Anyone tried Chelation Therapy?

My BF has had Progressive MS for 5 years and is interested in trying Chelation Therapy to eradicate lead and heavy metals out of his body (career as plumber, high exposure to lead). I am looking for testimonials of people with MS who have tried Chelation, either successfully or unsuccessfully. If you have a success story, which type of Chelation formula did you use?
