My MS Remains Inactive



I had my semi-annual MRI at Shepherd Center last week. Thankfully my MRIs get further apart the longer it continues to be inactive.

I haven't had any MS, (Multiple Sclerosis) relapses since 1994.  I began taking the disease modifying medications that came on the market that year.   I thank God the meds stopped the progression of the disease, which is rare.

Oh I still have fatigue, damage, and other symptoms to deal with but I can still live a good life!

Dont give up hope because I couldn't imagine myself getting better with age.....when I needed help bathing myself in 1993!

That's wonderful news! It may be an indication that your MS wll continue to be inactive in the future years, and no new lesion added to the existing ones.
