Frustrated -- Help!

I am at my wits end, and hoping for some help.

a positive response to the steroids. He pretty much told me my own neuro,

New, and Terrified

Hello all.

I'm new to the site, and a little bit (read: a lot) terrified at the moment, while I try to reach out and find some answers for myself regarding MS. I just returned home from a three day hospital stay where 99% diagnosis was made for MS. No lesions found on brain in contrast and non-contrast MRI; pending C-spine MRI (as they think it's originating there, or possibly brain stem) and neuro-ophthalmology assessment ...

Just curious...

Just curious about something...

If you were involved in a clinical trial, it stopped, lost funding, numerous people had absolutely no luck on the medicine, or something else was out there that has shown darn near 100% effectiveness, would you continue to try to get the drug financed or would you admit defeat and move on?
