!!!!! i can walk unassisted now! ive stopped using the power carts at walmart and use a regular cart. its hard to do, (and painful) but it feels good to get a little exercise! I am also able to stand in the shower and drive as well!!! :):):)

in other news, i now have MAJOR numbness and tingling on my right side of my chest, which is new (the tingling, the numbness has been there all along).

MS is so weird. i should be starting tysabri soon, if the damn clinic ever calls me :P

yay me!

Hopefully that will be so, Clark. I'm just a little antsy right now, because I know of someone on Facebook with PML from Ty..:(

i wish i knew eddie. the only thing i can think of is about 2 weeks ago i had physical therapy start to use their electro stim thingamabobs on my right thigh, since that is where its been hurting so much. then my walking got better and better. i actually do have to use my walking stick most of the time, since my balance is still shot to hell, but i can also stumble around like a drunk without it when i want :cool:

sally, i'm still going to start tysabri- i really dont want to get worse again. plus i was told i dont have the jc virus so i think that means pml is not a possibility?

Clark - get your testosterone level checked. Let me know the #. Im fluent - I take it. It works. You want the weekly shot not expensive daily applied gel. You'll improve trust me.
