After the 3rd treatment I was in bed for almost three weeks and barely able to move. I made three trips to the emergency room and spent a total of 5 nights in the hospital. After taking the 3rd treatment I had to be put ... Show Full Comment

    Although I tested positive for the JCV virus, I chose to start the Tysabri. I was previously on Rebif, had 2 new brain lesions on my last MRI with it, and because of a fear of needles (3 times subcu per week), and the glowing results of Tysabri, I have had 8 infusions so far, and I believe that I am doing better on the Tysabri. I am entering the time period that my risks for PML are increasing, ... Show Full Comment

By my second treatment my numbness and pains started to decrease. It is very easy to use if you can withstand having an IV inserted. The only downfall for me, the medicine lasts 28-29 days and until my next ... Show Full Comment
