Hi @ionela89 . I’m not sure I understand what your question actually is? But if it’s regarding the change of Disease Modifying Treatments (DMTs), then it’s a case of finding the one that is tolerated and does the job.

Tysabri is a more powerful treatment than both Avonex and Copaxone.

I’m sorry that you have to deal with Scoliosis as well. Do you have a good physio to work with you?

Hello … yes that was my fear. I changed in a very short while 3 times the treatment . I’m a bit scared of how fast this desease is going and NO I don’t go to any phsyhotronic help. I don’t like them . I’m afraid that neither this one will work and my desease it’s riding very fast. There anywere exist , maybe in anorher country, a solution to this desease ? My doc told me that neither this treatment is not sure that it will help me .

@ionela89 , we have to adopt a positive attitude. Our bodies respond to that attitude.

Don’t give up on physiotherapy. A good Neuro-physio can identify bad practice and muscle weaknesses, prescribing simple exercises to address these problems.

And, yest, there are stem cell treatments on offer in some countries. These treatments come at a high cost, with no guarantees and can be downright dangerous.
