Hey everyone

New here, so I hope I'm doing this right. I just have a ? about Tysabri. Did you bring it up to your neuro or did they? I've had such a progression with sx that have not stopped since early part of last year. I also got new sx that have stayed. I did have a new lesion on my c-spine in Nov. 06 & also a flare in June 07. My neuro has just ordered another MRI of my C spine, but has said nothing about my sx. I was thinking about asking him about TY, they do it there.

Thanks

How long has it been since you've seen your doctor? Have you kept him informed about your increased symtoms, or worsening situation?  It seems like a long time between doctor visits for you.  Usually a doctor is the one who will make suggestions about going on one of the medications for MS, either Tysabri, one of the interferons, or Copaxone.

Welcome to the board, Kimberdawn! I’m so glad you decided to post. I am a former lurker myself, and am really glad I finally joined. This really is a great group of people, and I hope you’ll feel comfortable and supported here. I hope everything goes well with your c-spine mri, and that your neuro is receptive to discussing tysabri with you. Let us know how things go.

Hi Kimberdawn,
Welcome to the board. You'll find alot of support here. Glad you posted. I will be starting Tysabri on march 24th. My neuro suggested it back in August with my last flair, but i couldn't decide. I wanted to give Rebif atleast a year like they say. It is not doing well for me. I have to try tysabri. I have been researching it for quite some time. I am ready now, and i hope it works for me. And good luck to you. I hope your neuro is open to it too.
