About Me: Male, 55, Great Neck, NY, member since Oct 2011
My first MS episode was in 1991. The second was in 2009. Neither one was all that thoroughly investigated, as the both resolved on their own. The latest on was in July 2011. This is the one that lead to my DX. In October of 2011 I was DX with SPMS. I started Tysabri inf
[More]usions in November.
Tysabri seems to have stopped working, as my CSF shows signs of disease activity. So now it's on to Rituxan!
I live in Great Neck, NY with two cats and two birds. My girlfriend has been putting up with me for nearly 14 years :-)
Just a quick note to say thank you for your very thoughtful and thorough response. Will continue on the journey to see what's going on, but your input has helped me calm down a bit. As I am sure you can understand ..it's very scary when your body feels like it's experiencing electric shocks and you can't pinpoint what is going on and it lasts for months. I've never had any medical issues going on consistently, so it's foreign territory for me . While I am concerned, at least I am heading toward an answer and appreciate your help! Mike
