Living Well with Multiple Sclerosis

When EJ Levy started to stumble more than usual during a hike in the summer of 2001 she thought she was just having an off day.  After her stumbling became more frequent, and she started falling out of yoga positions during her classes, she sought help from an orthopedist. But it only took minutes for the doctor to discover that she needed to see a neurologist, and within a few months, EJ was staring down a diagnosis of steadily progressive Multiple Sclerosis. In just two years she went from hiking and skiing to needing a wheelchair.  Through the intervention she received as part of a clinical trial at Mount Sinai Hospital, EJ is doing things today she thought she’d never be able to do again.
