benign ms,

I most certainly would have gone for any of the many ms disease modifying medications. They were never offered. My doctors always prescribed intravenous methylprednisolone. While proving great assistance in keeping me on the job the steroids weakened my bones and I get around with my spine looking like a capitol C, rather than a capital I. The neurologist labels me as his 'lucky' man. Proudly wear the benign label, 40 years after diagnosis. Exercise only helps! Good-luck to all.

  1. , thanks for sharing a part of your MS story with the community! I am so sorry long term steroid use affected your bone health. I would love to read more about your MS journey, if you feel comfortable sharing! Best, Erin, MultipleSclerosis.net Team Member.
