Hi guys, just curious after reading a few posts, is there a problem with a person who has MS to go under General Anaesthetic?

Advice

Many here have dealt with MS a lot longer than I have, so I'd figure I solicit some advice on something I've been considering.

Just a little background: I'm 38 years old, and was diagnosed last August, and started having symptoms that lead me to the doctor last mid-April. I started on Copaxone in October. My symptoms have been mostly sensory, some nerve pain, but I do feel my legs and arms get tired more ...

Not taking all my doses

I have discussions with patients every day about the importance of taking all of their doses of meds. I never missed a dose of Rebif for two years. Lately, however, I find that I am skipping 2 of the three doses per week because all of my injection sites are so tender and painful. Has anyone else done this? I am feeling guilty for missing doses, and I don't want to be a bad patient, ...

Internet Article about Me, and Some Video...

An old friend of mine has published a short Internet article about my experiences fighting multiple sclerosis. I thought some here might find it interesting.

Also, I put up a YouTube video showing what it's like to take a power wheelchair trip through the Upper West Side of Manhattan. It's kind of funny, and it's getting some good response. I hope you get a kick out of it...

Here's the article:

The Food and Drug Administration cited three confirmed cases, and a possible fourth, of people diagnosed with progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML) after being treated with Raptiva.
