Hello there

I am a 74 year old great grandmother who has r/r/m/s/. Although only diagnosed in 1999, I'm pretty confident I have had this condition since my teens. I consider that I'm pretty lucky in that I still only use a walking stick and, on bad days, a wheelie walker.
Living in the sub tropics I find the weather does affect me but have a couple of air conditioners and many fans in the house, which do help in the warmer months.

I was on Avonex for about 3 years but it didn't seem to make any difference and no changes noticed since I came off it some 5 years ago.

Hope that is enough for an intro.

Welcome to ThisIsMS, sunshinetwo. We are glad to meet you and glad you have found us. As we look back, most of us think we have had MS quite a while before being diagnosed. We are happy to share our experiences and our opinions, when asked. I look forward to your contribution to our conversations
My hypothesis: excess insulin (hyperinsulinemia) plays a major role in MS, as developed in my initial post: http://www.thisisms.com/forum/general-discussion-f1/topic1878.html "Insulin – Could This Be the Key?"
