MRI results

I got my results back today. I honestly have been fearing to worst, but to my surprise my MRI came back only slightly changed. Doc gave me the option of staying with copaxone and start taking it three times a week or start with tecfidera? I have been doing research on the meds and I chose the copaxone. Now your probably wondering why needle over pill. I don’t want anymore pills to take. With the needle there is only one of them.

@rhonda_burchett , “slightly changed” is still a sign of progression!

It is obviously your choice of treatment, but your Neuro is being somewhat conservative in the choices offered to you. There are more effective treatments available that don’t involve frequent injections or regular tablets. Why wait to potentially accrue further irreversible damage before treating your MS aggressively?

At the end of the day, it’s your choice. But, you should have been offered all the available options………..
