Hello..New Here and Recently Diagnosed

Though I have been "lurking" for quite some time, this is my first official post. You all share such great information and it has helped me tremendously. I have suspected for quite sometime that I have had MS, but just recently had it confirmed...finally..thank goodness by an MS Specialist.

Techfidera Vs Gilenya

I have been on Techfidera since May 2013. As I have had good MRI new walking has dramatically gone downhill. My legs are so weak, my balance is bad. The daily simple things have gotten increasingly harder. I am starting Gilenya in a couple of days. Just curious is anyone has experienced anything similar? Would also like to hear opinions on Gilenya.

Time to throw the ball out of the pram !

I'm looking at the Aubagio tablets wondering whether to take the plunge, shall I take it tonight or the morning, after 3 years of uncertainty and then a diagnosis I'm heading into yet more uncertain territory and quite frankly I'm ready to throw my ball out of the pram.

Since returning to the Uk I seem to have spent more time waiting for appointments than getting any nearer a diagnosis. I was finally diagnosed with Relapsing Remittent Multiple Sclerosis in the middle of September and at first ...
