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'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
