Confused about treatment options

I got my first symptoms about 12 years ago. Vertigo hit me suddenly and I carried on till it went away. While I was in college a year later, I lost sight in my right eye. I went to an eye doctor and had an mri done and they found nothing. Years later I found my wife and she pressed for more studies. They found the lesions that were causing the trouble.

Treatment is vast and confusing. Lots of decisions after a diagnosis. I’m not sure how it works in the US, but I think the neurologist should be able to advise, and the insurance company. Charities can also give good advice. All the best.


Hi @Leco I'm sorry this has happened to you, and also relieved that it's been explained. When I was diagnosed, I was given a website with 4 injectables to choose from, and told to consider what fit best with my lifestyle. In prep for my next neurology appt though, I want to be guided on treatment, how long I could be on the drug before I have to change it etc. MS Society in the UK has a good table showing all the drugs available here - hope that helps!
