Hello all.

Post by Eli » Sun Aug 31, 2008 5:24 am

I was diagnosed with RRMS in 1997 after being involved in a nasty motorcycle crash which i walked away from. I suffered three relapses within a very short period of time which prompted my consultant to start me on Avonex.

I was taking Avonex for two years when i came across Rebif 44 whilst researching treatments on the internet. I asked my consultant if i could switch drugs and he agreed and i have been on Rebif ever since. I shant go into my many symptoms as i am sure you are all fully aware of the nasty side of M/S, i just live each vile day in the hope it will end soon.

Hey Eli-
Welcome. Sorry you find yourself here, but glad you've come to the boards. You are a lucky man....walking away from a bike accident. I lost my 40 year old brother last Sept. in a solo motorcycle accident- but you are certainly not lucky in your MS.

Alot of folks can trace their MS back to bad physical injuries and accidents...seems like that's your profile.

Assuming you're in the EU (whilst and shant?)-
Hope you are well,

Welcome Eli.

And a big hello to our resident "profiler" :)

Although i think this maybe was a stretch

see, I question the use of "vile" and the fact your name is Eli. Neither based on science, but while we are playing the game...

Whilst we wait for Eli's verification of my profiling prowess...

Eli,
Welcome. I have discovered the large and helpful amounts of information available here. There are some curious and amazing minds at work here although Cure has just been put in his place. (smiley face here)
Be Well,
Lars

OK, I never understood why I got that, until now.
