Hi my name is Sandra. I am 58 years old. Symptoms for YEARS. Diagnosed in August 2012. Just started the PREFERMS Study. Randomized to Gilenya. "Retired" in April 2013 after working over 40 years. Am wife, mother, and nana. Live in Tennessee. Like many other MS patients, it took many consultations to get diagnosed. For me it was four neurologists. Finally found an MS specialist in another city who was able to help me. Besides Gilenya (my first DMD), I take Baclofen for spasticity, Lexapro for depression, and Levothyroxine for underactive thyroid. I just started using a cane when I go out alone to help with balance. Along with balance, my main issues are cognitive, fatigue, and weakness.
