Tremors be GONE!

I just want to send out a positive signal I got that Tysabri is doing something GOOD. I recall my handwriting getting really bad in 1992. I could no longer write, just print letters slowly as I held my tremoring right hand with the other. It was awful as I was still working & needed my handwriting. Over the years I had to give up many things, like not writing checks. It also meant not writing personal cards & letters to people I loved. I missed my non-tremor hands so much! When I first started Tysabri a year ago, my handwriting improved to the point that I could address my X-mas cards & even print short notes! The tremors had stopped! Wow, that was the best present I got for X-mas! But it didn't last long. And NOW, since I've reached my one-year-mark with Tysabri, my handwriting is coming back again! What a blessing! I'm happy with any improvement no matter how small, and of course I want more & more!

It's heartening to learn of your better handwriting as you take Tysabri. I wish you more and more improvements for this Christmas!

Awww Dee,

That is just so wonderful to hear!

I just had my 13th Tysabri infusion yesterday... Tysabri, the drug of hope, has a nice ring to it, huh?

Again dearheart, congratulations!

Your posting gives me hope. I suffer from tremors to the point that I almost cannot write, very similar to what you described. I am starting Tysabri shortly and hope for similar results. Congratulations on your improvement and wish me luck.
