MS (or not) Updates. by Littlemisssunshine Posted Sat 17 May 2014 11:46am So..... last Friday I had my MRI.  It was God-awful.  Like I knew it wasn't going to be fun or anything, but I mean it was REALLY not fun.  Putting your head in a cage and being strapped down for 45 minutes with constant banging and rattling is incredibly unpleasant.  It makes me sad to think kids have to do that... I hope they sedate them? ... Read on »
