my M.S history

I have had MS for 36 plus years in last 10 years I had facial neuralgia. My doctor has tried kinds of medication, works for awhile then no results. Sent me to a Neurosurgeon. She did a lot tests on me. Came to conclusion that I needed a operation. It is fairly new called MRgFUS done by Dr. Kiss of Calgary
