Dave, Plan E isn't through with you yet. Straight lines are nice, easy, predictable. But life is not made from straight lines. Variability, randomness, unpredictability, that's life.

Have you had an MRI showing active lesions? Well, then, you don't know MS is back. When healing from an injury, it's not unusual to tear loose scar tissue. Sometimes it's required. You and I have never had to heal a CNS injury. We don't know how it's supposed to go. And, that confounded aging process gets thrown in, too.

OK, so I'm biased. I want Plan E to work. I know you want it, too. I can only say one thing, stay active my friend.

Well, this news just sucks- You are one of the few inbox people I always click on to see what's up in ms-land. I was sitting in the drive thru line @ In-n-Out and read your news. We know you have MS, just as everyone 'knows' I have MS. And we all watched me go straight down the tubes w PMS until 5 months ago, when I diagnosed myself w B12 deficiency. Yup, no one else figured that one out. Currently curing my PMS one B12 shot at a time. Today I am a 9 (EDSS) and I will keep getting better. I was a perfect 10 for the last couple years, an active 10, though Pls be sure all the other usual suspects are ruled out, just as if you never had MS before. I know I'm beyond lucky to have something treatable; I expect the PMS will be more manageable in the future. Keep up the fight. Would send you a Double-Double if I could. Kris

It is sobering news to say the least, but one thing we all know is we are more, MUCH more than our MS.

I echo the sentiments above and reiterate the fact that you, we, are not alone.

MS-IS-BeatableSomeday - no question.

You're tough. Just keep swinging. We're all right there with you fighting. Better to have Plan F than Preparation H.

Dave! Hope you feel better soon! (I know you will, too!)
(at the risk of sounding too mushy, I'll stop right there!)
