I commented on Bamfan1412's post so I thought I might introduce myself. I was diagnosed at age 65 in 2011 with MS. I continue to have flairs at least once a year. My first MRI showed I have many scars from Flair's. My latest one was in January..I was privileged to be hospitalized for this one. I am now 70. My doctor says I am an outlier as I continue on medications and continue to have Flair's. At my age most MS patients have quit having flairs and are off medication according to my doctor.. So there you have it. I'm an old man with continuing deterioration fr MS. I just got a complex power chair. My ability to walk, shower, brush teeth, etc. Are highly curtailed. The doctor wants me to spent two weeks in a rehab center.
