    Hello Looking around and just saw your posting that sounds very interesting.

    Have had ms for approx 14 years taken all avail drugs, spinal taps, infusions and pills including Ampyra for speed none have made sig diff but perhaps have helped with progression things cold be worse. Still sorta ambulatory but balance is way off! Using a walker with draggin feet most times.

    Thinking of starting TYSABRI (immuno suppress) but not sure cannot combine with any other suppress.

    Is there a site for fir-tex?
