haven't been here in a while so let me reintroduce myself

Hello everybody,

I run a meetup.com activity group for people with MS in New York City (surprisingly there wasn't one anywhere in the tri-state area) and if you're interested please do join, it's free! - http://www.meetup.com/People-with-Multiple-Sclerosis/

Several meetups on the schedule with more to come. Suggestions always welcome.

Looking forward to meeting you!

Thanks, ToNY :-)

Drugs for Dizziness?

Are there any good drugs for dizziness out there? My husband has PPMS and the dizziness has become debilitating. He was prescribed betahistine but it doesn't really help at all.
