Bee Sting Therapy - anyone else do it?

Hello, I'm brand new on this forum, in fact brand new to forums. This is my first post.

I have secondary progressive MS having been diagnosed 15 years ago and am now, to all intents, paraplegic using an electic wheelchair for my mobility. (This is being typed by a carer.)

Some good news

I have just saw the boys and Carrie and one lesion right now is no big deal.

In other cases they have seen the body pop off a couple of lesions, then it stops and seems to go dormant. They never have them again.
