I have had several MRIs to brain and cerivical spine. I have lesions on both. I have had two spinal taps and the two antibody bands showed up. My neurologist says that yes it is MS but the last set of MRIs show no new lesions. My right hand/arm is usable but not very. My dr. said that some people feel that treatment should begin early but he said that the side effects to the drugs... shots can be bad. He wanted me to do some research and get back to him. He gave me the choice of waiting another 6 months for another set of MRIs or to start treatment. What confuses me is that if the treatment slows the progress, why should I wait? The symptoms he told me to watch for seem to have some bad "side effects" also. Any information, insight, thoughts or support would be appreciated. Thanks, Aiyanna

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
