I am starting to recover, but the headache and balance are still bad. I believe my fall was ...

I am beginning to think the rituxan is working for me. Last weekend I spent most of my time either fishing or working in the yard. The fishing isn't out of the ordinary but the heavy duty yard work is. It was hot and I was running a chainsaw all day. This is the first time in a long while that I have been able to do something like this. It feels so good to ...

I´ve joined the board today only after spending a few weeks reading some information in here and i would like to ask you about the symptoms i´m having.

I´m not diagnosed with MS yet, and i really hope never but it looks like there is something going on.
