Hi. 32 and diagnosed with Relaspe Remitting MS two years ago. Optic Neuritis was the first real symptom that lead to the diagnosis. Cognitive impairments have been around for years but never really made sense until I was diagnosed. Found this site because i'm also Bipolar -- but saw there was a MS group here too. MS has taken so much from me and I had no idea until I lost my vision in my right eye and got fired from my job two months later. I am currently on Copaxone 40mg 3x weekly because i'm trying to have a baby. Tysabri is what works for me but the studies on pregnant women aren't enough for me to continue on it. I tried this same approach 1 year ago but relapsed while on Copaxone (12 new ehancing lesions with optic neuritis, plus a fancy new lesion on my brain stem causing lots of choking!) after 7 months. I went back to Tysabri for one year and now i'm 2 months in on Copaxone. I am working with a fertility specalist, withdrawn from my Bipolar meds and praying I do not relapse before I get pregnant or go "One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest" first. HAH! Glad I could get that out with people who understand what it is to have MS.
