My story

Hello everyone! I have MS along with heart disease, brain tumor, degenerative disc disease, COPD plus a few more things.

I am currently waiting to go on the new medication Ocruvis. I did all my blood work to find out my thyroid is wako!

Started meds for the thyroid and hopeful to start meds in 3 weeks.

I have taken multiple medications that have helped for a while then stop.

I am in SPMS gradually sliding towards PPMS. So we are going to be aggressive to stop further progression.

I have a wonderful Dr that I have been with since 2003. Find a great Dr that specializes in MS. Don't give up. Fight!!

I have MS but MS will not gave me!!

(I Live near Shreveport Louisiana)

I don't know if you have hypo or hyperthyroidism. I have hypothyroidism. Once they find the right dosage for you, that will be probably your easiest issue. But, oh my, you're facing a lot. I wish you the best. I always wonder how people with multiple issues know what symptoms to blame which disease with.
