I have had MS for 3 years now and can relate to the same issues you were having with your first neurologist. I have been getting worse with no help from my neuro. He keeps pushing the Tysabri which I do not want to go on. I am very sensitive to medications. I have been to Mayo and Northwestern where they both confirmed my MS from the MRI's. I did not want to travel to the city Chicago so found just a regular neuro in the burbs who is the one pushing the Tysabri. He acts like it is no big deal. I am like you and just want to treat my symptoms , healthy diet and Physical Therapy. I was hoping you could tell me the name of the MS specialist that you found and like since we both live in the same state.
