Hello everybody

Just a brief introduction since I am new to this site. I am 31 years old, living in Las Vegas, originally from the upstate NY area, and was diagnosed Halloween of 2012. I am new to MS personally, but I have always been relatively familiar with the disease being that my mom has this too.

I have been on Gilenya for the past 6 or 7 weeks and feel as though it has had very ...

Hello there!

Hi there everybody!

To introduce myself my name is Kait! I'm 22 years old, live up in North Bay, Ontario and I am currently awaiting a diagnosis. I was diagnosed with optic neuritis back in June (right at the end of my school year of course!) and after two MRI's something has come up.

A year, a month, and some days.

Hello everyone how are you?!

I know not everyone is too well, but don't forget to try to smile despite the pain and all of the negative thoughts that flow through our minds. This is a struggle but don't forget that others, myself included are here to hold your hand through it all, we are all connected despite any differences we may have, by this ugly thing that is MS, but we shall overcome!

My ...

Tysabi PML Risk Clarification Needed

I am a new member, but we need to decide in the next 24-48 hours whether Tysabri or Tecfidera is the preferred initial course of treatment for my daughter. After exhaustive research, we still have ambiguous and conflicting information on PML risk.

Err, is there a "right" way to be sick?

Hi All,I am 19 years old and was DX'd at age 14. I never actually post on forums, so not quite sure how it works... I guess I'm just looking some support and tactics to stay positive.

Copaxone, Tysabri, Gilenya, Tecfidera, Plasmapheresis...) and none of them seem ...
