I was D/O in 04 started Avonex. '05 along w/ IVIG. Total of 5-6 flare ups. Steriods always helped with the signs & symptoms of flare ups 4 me. I've had 3 flare ups within the last 4 m/o including the one currently that started off w/my L pinky finger now spread to my whole L side (minus face) w/in 2wks. Tysabri was suggested by my neurologists @ the MS care center months ago but fear had me procrastinate. After 5 days on the IV steriods and 8 days on the steriods taper(pills) no improvement, numbness has actually progressed. I'm waiting on approval from the Touch program to begin Tysabri...I want to know if anyone has experienced reverse signs/symptons of flare ups after infusion of Tysabri? I'm only 29 y/o & looking for some hope that I might get the sensation to my L side back. I go thru the spectrum of emotions but try to remain patient & hopeful.
