I was diagnosed with MS 7 years ago and other than my initial problems, I have been basically symptom free for the last 6 years until the last two months in which I seem to be making up for lost time! I am now unable to walk, drive, work or basically do anything productive. I am seeing a wonderful new neurologist who specializes in MS. I really like the doctor but he thinks I should go on Tysabri for one year even though I have tested positive for the JC virus. He seems to think that the Tysabri will be my only hope of regaining my mobility and ability from before this last month or two. I would appreciate any advice or insight! Thanks, LaurenView Thread
