    Today on 'Montel Williams', on an unrelated topic, he said his monthly drug cost is $2400 which includes a daily injection and still leaves him crying in pain by Saturday night.

    The only thing I forgot is what he has. MS isn't it?

    Anyway: it was nice to have him be up front and personal with his viewers about whatever illness is plaguing him.

    He doesn't look sick either does he. Just like us.

    He has MS. He does both conventional and alternative treatment's.

    He had a great show on it. He is trying to get a bill passed on treating chronic pain "using alternative theraphy'.

    He wrote a book on his health and how it has changed his life.

    he is trying to make a difference for those w/MS and other chronic pain conditions.

    When i feel really bad, I try to remind myself, there are still other's that have it worse.

    Best wishes,

    I kind of thought Montel had MS or FM. I was not sure.
    Thanks for filling me in.

    I am going to search above because somewhere in the back of my mind I remember a thread in my early days here about a possible connection between FM/MS. I shall search......

    I have read that he uses medicinal mj for pain. I hope it is okay to post that. He has been a big advocate of med. mj.

    Take care, Sally
