work and saying you have MS

Hello,
Rather new to posting on this site, but have read it for a while. My question for everyone is: How many of you have told your employer about your illness? Did you find this to be beneficial or a mistake? Were they understanding, or not? Would you advise someone to say or not?

side effects everyone?

sorry this may be sort of a repeat of anther question.

Does everyone get side effects like the flu and chills etc. from avonex? my son starts soon, but I do think the Dr. wants us to choose between this one and the beta one. But leaning toward this one due to the once a week thing. one the other hand, the side effects do sound aweful.

My lazy update for anyone whos interested

Ok,

I have now been on doxy and roxi since about the 10th Sep this year.

I cannot honestly say I have had any reactions to the two antibiotics, so I decided to start the flagyl a little early (ie after only 3-4 weeks). Ok, so im impatient. It gets worse...

So, ...

Interesting talk on link of histamine and a "viral"

Hi,

I found this bit at http://weeksmd.com/articles/ms/JVW_Multiple_Sclerosis.html while looking into procarin.
