Non-typical symptoms?

Hi everyone!

My wife was diagnosed with MS in August 08 after having major migraines and the Dr. requested an MRI. Since the diagnosis she has had these episodes of blacking out. She is not falling unconcious, she is just not remembering up to an hour of time. Lately as the heat here in TX has gotten hotter she has had them more frequently - two this week alone. Has anyone else experienced this? Her ...

Okay... MRV here we come!

After much discussion over the past couple of weeks we've decided to look into all of this.

I've emailed Dr. Dake, Mel is going to talk to her PCP.

I've asked him if there's anyone locally he'd trust to do the MRV. Then we've got the intervention to worry about if a problem is found.

Right at the very beginning of the process but it feels good to do something.

25 Years ago Joan (aka cheerleader) and I stood at the alter of my hometown church and said these words to each other:

'to have and to hold from this day forward, for better or for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish; from this day forward until death do us part.

(yes, we chose the traditional vows)

All of us with MS know you find out ...

My take on Tysabri after 7 infusions

Well after 7 infusions of this stuff, I thought I'd take the time to post my thoughts and obvservations concerning it. A quick history to give a starting point. Progressed from 1 on EDSS to 4.5 in a very short period of time prior to trying Tysabri. I was in the Tovaxin trial and opted out after 8 months in the extension, so to me, I was going untreated for roughly 2 years and progressed ...
