    Hi Shakti,

    Let me join John in welcoming you. I’m sorry for the pain and advancing disability you’re having but I’m glad that you seem to be making lemonade out of those lemons. Please let us know when your YouTube channel is up. I’d like to see it. The comic also, of course. We all need a Gimpy Girl, or Guy, laugh.

    Good for you, John, for getting back into it. I’m far less disabled that you and I try to exercise every other day. I’m fortunate to have a great exercise room in the condo community where I live. Here’s my usual routine:

    I’ve recently worked back up to 20 minutes on the recumbent bike.
    3 sets of 10 reps on several upper body weight machines.

    Hi Marcy,

    Let me join John in welcoming you.

    About the JVC and Tysabri. Most people are JCV positive. I am, but it didn’t keep me from being treated with Tysabri for 7 years. The problem between the two is that Tysabri tends to raise what’s called your JCV titer level. If that level becomes too high it increases the risk of contracting the…[Read more]

  • Thanks for the info, Carla. It’s interesting that your DX was the same as my wife suggested. There’s no other indication of asthma, or trouble breathing, with me. So, we’ll see.  Ed

    Dear Marta,

    I’m sorry to learn of your possible myeloma. I’ve not heard of a connection between MS and bone cancer but, perhaps, someone else on this site has. I did find this series of posts on another web site from several years ago. I’m not sure whether or not it relates to your situation.…[Read more]

        Hi Renee,

        Welcome to the MS forums. It sounds as if you’re juggling a lot of balls and I hope the info here will help you deal with one of them. I’m glad that your MS is doing pretty well. Since being diagnosed in 1980 I’ve found it’s a lot better to learn to dance in the rain than to hide from the storm.

        Good luck,

        Ed
