so my right arm went numb and tingly and after several dr appointments, 2 MRI’s, lots of blood work (to rule out other things) and a lumbar puncture, the diagnosis of RRMS was confirmed in October 2016. I saw an MS specialist that the neurologist referred me to and she started me on Tecfidera. I couldn’t take that. She switched me to Copaxone. so far, I can take that.
my initial symptoms have gone away. I understand that the hope is that taking the Copaxone will slow the progression of the disease.
I was adopted as an infant and after searching for my birth parents, found them. My birth mother had MS and she passed away in 2007 from cancer.
My goal is to stay as healthy as possible so I can be as mobile as possible for as long as possible. Anyone else in the same boat? or are we all in the same place?
any advice from those who have dealt with this longer?
