Hi, I am a caregiver for my husband. He has had MS for over 25 years but wasn't diagnosised until 1994 with onset of ON in L eye. We didn't know at the time that his total blindness in R eye was due to ON. He was one of the first to get an MRI at Vanderbilt in TN back in the early 80's. His MS did not show on test. His body has had the ability to heal most of his immflamation, until now. Years have been adding a few lesions, but only 5 in the brain. Don't know about the spinal cord. Medicare won't pay for extra MRI's soon after you take one. He is looking forward to starting Tysabri soon. He has been on Copaxon and despises the needle daily. He took Betaseron at first and developed the antibodies that made it quit working. He loves the Copaxon except for the needle. It has done him very well.
