    Hello

    I am from New Brunswick and was diagnosed in June 2009. I am currently having a major flare up but I think the steroids I was on are starting to work I hope I can recover 100% but I realize this may not be possible.

    I think we're lucky to have the medical system we have, even if it is lacking at times, compared to our neighbours to the south.
    Hi there,
    I also live in ottawa and was recently diagnosed with ppms. I am 35 years old and quite nervous of what is to become. I am a 3.5 on the scale. What are you and who is your doctor?

    Hi there,

    I'm new to all of this and I am from Burlington, ON.

    Had an MRI over a month ago that showed "spots" in the front and back left side. I am going for an MRI with contrast on Tuesday....so, sort of in limbo right now.

    My mom was diagnosed with MS about 15 years ago and I have experienced years of symptoms. Sent to this specialist and that specialist and it is so frustrating!! I finally told my doctor that I wanted to start at the top and with the obvious.....MS....and go from there.

    Thanks for reading!

    So depressed

    I haven't been diagnosed yet, after all these years on different anti depressants. I had vertigo young in life and that's when the panic attacks started. I had started dieting and went down to 83 lbs had lost my sight then passed out. Different things had happened, now that I go back in time. I feel lost and alone. A few years ago I went for a facial and she did microbrasion, I couldn't feel it. Right now I can't feel my chest the upper part of my body when I pinch it, I can't feel it. I'm new here so please, I hope I'm not saying things that is against regulations?? I'm in the Midland area, just north of Barrie.

    Anyhow I am Gary from Beaumont, Alberta (just a tad south of Edmonton). I was dx with RRMS in Dec 2007 and have been on Copaxone ever since....all in all I am doing pretty good. I still work, enjoy motorcycle riding and things as such. I have a wonderful wife, and 4 kids...the youngest who just this summer turned 18...

    I really like to help when I can other people with MS. I find that when a group of people as those who are here in this site get together, it is a great way to share ideas and coping methods....

    Looking forward to talking to you all and getting to know you all better...

    Have a great day,

    Gary

    MSG and things such as aspatane or however it spelled is really bad for MS as it is ....just giving you heads up

    Also-has anyone on Copaxone had a terrible reaction to MSG (Monosodium Glutamate)? It's the stuff that the majority of restaurants and fast food places put on the food to enhance the flavour (ie. McDonalds, Chinese food restaurants and A&W)
    I learned that MSG affects the brain activity and wondered if this has a combined effect with my Copaxone?

    Thank you all from Thornhill.
