My Story 0 Appreciate this

I was diagnosed in 2010, at 57, but knew something was amiss in 2007 when my right hand went numb. I wasn't totally surprised with my Primary Progressive MS diagnosis because my sister has had Relapsing-Remitting for years. I haven't taken any MS drugs except Ampyra short term because there haven't been any for PP MS. Now there's Ocrevus and I'm struggling with the decision to take it or not. My progression has been relatively slow, but it is progressing. I walk unaided at home, but use a cane often when outside.
