Tysabri infused in Canada

I was talking to the Biogen/Tysabri toll-free help line yesterday and Monday and according to them the first two Tysabri infusions were to take place today in the northern Ontario (central Canada) city of Sudbury (2001 population - approximately 155,000).

So it looks like Tysabri has arrived in Canada. :)

Any Canadians out there who have been infused could you please share your experiences.

From the sunny ...

Once in a while, I take a few "normal" steps.
The numbness in my left hand comes and goes, but has nearly gone away.
I am not so tired.
The ringing in my right ear has lessened and has even gone away for a few seconds at a time.
Sometimes I can freely move my ...

New treatments unlikely in the UK

Well, whatever anyone thinks about the so-called "free" health service in the UK, it seems unlikely that anybody using the UK NHS will receive any of the new treatments in the offing because they will all be too expensive according to my neurologist.
