Treatment criteria?


I'm a pretty infrequent poster, but avid reader on this forum. This revimmune treatment seems to be very promising to say the least. I was diagnosed in 2005 but had symptoms going back to 2000.

Glad to be here! Any advice welcome!

Would appreciate new friends/contact

My name is Cindy and was diagnosed with RRMS in early 2002.
Have been reading this wonderful forum for several months... this is my first post. Just turned 51, I am in North Carolina, originally from CA, USA.
At this stage, there is no pain but my mobility is really bad.
I'm not sure what I want to say--other than I just have to get started and actually reach out/connect this time...
The bottom line, ...
