I haven't really posted much about myself or what has happened with my Tovaxin trial, so I think this might be therapeutic for me now. Sorry if this gets long winded.
I was dx February 2007, my symptoms started mid Dec. 06, a few days after my son was born. I woke up to 20 inches of snow and numbness in both ring finger and pinkies bilaterally. In the next week, the numbness spread throughout both hands, up the backs of my arms and across my chest.
After several doctors visits and hating the first neurologist that dx me, left me a message on my work phone that I had MS, thats another story. My mom found out about the Tovaxin study through a friend of a friend in Texas, I was pointed to the Colorado Springs site and got into the study.
Since the numbness went away about three months after it started and I was in the study, I have had only a few flare ups that went away within a month of starting. And as you all know with being in this kind of study it was in the back of my mind if I was getting the real stuff or not. I am feeling pretty normal as of late and not really having any issues to speak of, so I am looking forward to hearing if I was or not, and if I am still producing MRTCs.
We recently moved back to Texas and I covered the change of sites in another post. I was worried about the heat and humidity, but it I haven't had any problems yet. Sometimes I am in denial that I even have MS as this point.
I do have a problem sometimes when I get on the forums about not getting down seeing what other people are going through and wondering if things are going to change for me. That is why I haven't chimed in that much on here.
Ok, that is enough rambling. This is some of the things that have been on my mind, I hope y'all don't mind be getting this off my chest.
