MS: There is no cure but there are many treatment options. Your rheumatologist is best suited to assist you with making decisions with you for the best treatment possible.

Numerous meds now: We do not yet have the full-blown cure, but we do very well indeed with control. Newer more potent medications are here, and many patients are finding stability. Tysabri, (natalizumab) gilenya, tec-federa, and even Aubagio are supplanting the prior self-injectables. We have even found vitamin d supplements to make a big difference.

No: Sadly there’s no cure available for MS. It’s an autoimmune disease, that means that your own immune system targets in MS, the myelin around the neurons axons, by error cause its not meant to be inside the brain it does not recognize it, this slows dow the synapse and leads to ms symptoms. There are many testaments available. Field: clinical neurologist
