MSers in Los Angeles / So Cal area-- wanna share local info?

Hello. I'd like to know if there are other people on this site who live in the Los Angeles (or broader Southern California) area and who would like to share information with other locals with MS.

I was Dx with PPMS in June 2007 and have seen three neurologists at two hospitals, including one former and one current head of the UCLA Dept. of Neurology. I'm still looking for my primary neurologist and would love ...

I live in a high rate area...

In Colorado, 1 out of every 750 people is diagnosed having MS. That is far above the norm of 1 out of every 2000 diagnosed on the American continent. Has there been any studies done that show you may increase your chances of disability due to MS if you continue to stay in the high rate area? Or to put it another way... Should I leave this state or does it not matter now since ...

I had my single MS attack approximately 3 years ago. It took about 18 months to recover and my symptoms are currently relatively mild. At the time of the attack, I was close to finishing up my schooling and after a break, was able to get back on track. If MS was not a factor, I'd ...
