    Hi, i was recently diagnosed with MS and it would be comforting to know of persons in Trinidad with the disease. I still have to see a neuro-physicist, Dr Aleong in POS whom my eye specialist referred me too. It would be helpful to know of any other

    Hi... my 21 year old son was diagnosed with MS 5 years ago... It's real challenging ... the cost of the medication is quite exorbitant and we cannot afford it... please let's share info on how you all cope.

    Well I just got a referral from my son's neurologist to join Dr, Esack's Clinic at Mt Hope. We haven't had an appointment date yet. Im waiting for them to call. Anyways, you indicated that you get the medication for free. My son has remitting/relapsing form of MS and was prescribed Avonex... what do you use and what form of MS were you diagnosed with? Blessings

    Sorry for the very late reply. Did you get through? I was diagnosed with the same type, after staying a few times in the hospital,it now looks like a different type of MS.I think it's called Relapse Progressive MS. My medication is betaferon,obtained at the pharmacy in Mt.Hope.By the way,how's your son?
