Help

I’ve had MS for 20 years come May. I’ve had the gamut everything from losing my eyesight to partial paralyzation too many relapses I’ve had every kind of treatment that’s been out there I’ve been on Tysabri for the last 9 years. It has torn my family apart to where my husband and I split up. He states that it had nothing to do with the end of but I have to differ. My doctor is now wanting to put me on them Lemtrada and I am very apprehensive is there anyone out there who can help me. I contacted the company but they gave me very little info.
