I was updating my profile on "Patient's Like Me" and I came across this posting that I added over 2 years ago before I decided to start taking Tysabri:
Hi, I am interested in hearing from anyone that is currently receiving Tysabri. My MS has become very aggressive. I have developed over 10 lesions in my brain within 7 months of being diagnosed. I also have 4 lesions in my spinal cord. I am currently on Copaxone but it's not aggressive enough so my doctor at UC San Francisco wants me to consider Tysabri. I am trying to get as much info as I can from actual patients. Please help. I am a little afraid, at the same time, if I don't do something, I'm sure that I will become more disabled. Right now my feet are numb and I get sharp, shooting pains all over my body. I am also very scatter brained and forgetful. I know a lot of you can relate. Any info that you have would be greatly appreciated!
Here is a link to the entire thread and some of the responses that I received from other patients:
