After a major flare I am now dealing with loss of balance and independant walking. My fingertips are numb. I quit Avonex after 10 years. I just no longer beleved it was effective. Faced with the decision about meds, I decided to start Tysabri. In addition I am consistent with taking my vitamins: Omega 3, vitamin D, Magnuesium, Vitamin B-12 and Alpha Lipoic Acid and Acetyl l Carnitine. The vitamins help me with my strength and stamina. I'm also doing another round of PT to get me back on my feet. Balance is imperative. Energy and stamina are necessary
It's slow right now. A seemingly slow progression of days--some good; some bad. We'll see what the neuro says. I gonna keep trying. My goal is to walk 50' assisted by cane and return to the starting point consistently by June of 2010. It may be a "heavy lift" but I am determined. This whole episode has been a new and trying time. I'm in the mood to fight. I gonna fight and win--God willing.
