Advice & Tips: I have a shoulder problem since injury at home 6/8/2009, that seemed to get much better with time so i thought some therapy, electrical, heat, stretching, would help. It made it much worse. I checked today with my neurologist and I am sceduling a dual MRI for shoulder and brain on April 22, 2010 to check for leisions and check the shoulder. I am trying to confirm "Exaxerbation" related to my disability with MS or fix and repair to reduce pain. A bit more to the story with my lower back surgery on Nov. 2, 2009 when my two year old rebif failed due to immunity and I began the exaserbation of extreme degeneration until March 18, 2010 since I stared Amprya. I do not trust the copaxone but am sticking with it until the MRI. (I had a brain MRI with indicator Jan. 20 and had 8 leisions.) If this is growing in numbers or size I will switch to Tysabria. That is it.
Cost: $25-49 monthly
