Just thought I would let you know there is a Panorama programme on Monday 15 December on BBC1 titled "Can You Stop My Multiple Sclerosis?" which I thought you might want to watch.
Furthermore I have just been sent an ezine for people with progressive MS which might be of interest to some of you - please see link below.
Finally I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy 2016!

Ill try abd making this short, basically iv been experiencing multiple sclerosis symptoms for a while since igave birth. It started with off balance, neuralgia and pain behind my eyes. It then went on to muscle stiffness, twitching of the eyes and many more. I had an appointment yesterday with a private neutologist who didnt say very much abouy my symptoms, but when he did a neurological examination he said my right eye, where the pain is on movement, was slow in reacting to the light test. My pupil stayed small on right eye and took a while to retur to normal. He recommeneded a a MRI in my kneck, head and spine with contrast and left itst that. My vitamin D levels are also way below nor al guide lines, so on 60,000 prD tablets a week, but my questikn is, is the pupil examination a sign of ms in itself?
I have been on tysabri since october 2012, i have blood test for JC virus every 6 months have they had being coming back negative but the last came positive.
The Tysabri has been great.
Hello ! Off for my evp test tomorrow at 1pm. Quite intrigued to what they do. Was told I was having it done to check as I have been having eye problems.
Will let you know how I get on! :) hope everyone is ok xx
