  • I firmly believe that MS is viral; so not sure that clicks with the bacteria connect; but I take an anti-viral drug and do think it has slowed the progression; still fight fatique; etc but diagnosed in 95 and still walk, bike, spin, swim, so; everyone with ms should be taking amantadine; its an old and cheap anti viral drug. happy holidays
