      Oh yes! If only this had been known in 2009 when at 49 I was finally diagnosed with MS. Though had first sclerosis attack 2 years earlier!

      In the UK they prescribed lightweight DMT’s at first Rebif (beta interferon-1a) was mine. Think this still hasn’t changed!!!!

      It was the case that the drugs always chased the progression – rather than the other way round.

      Presently have nothing – once u have SPMS they give up! At least with me.

      Presume this is better in other countries.

      Pls let me know your experiences.

      That’s one of the bad things about government-provided medical care. It’s great that it’s free but you have horrible mandates such as “start treatment slowly (i.e. inexpensively), no matter what.” The government officials don’t seem to realize that providing the most effective treatment right away not only improves the patient’s quality of life, it’s cost-effective.

      Can anyone disagree with that?

      Er, no. Even though I hate to agree with an American, even though it’s Ed, about health care!
