I have recently been diagnosed with RRMS and i am waiting to start treatment, I am going to see my MS nurse for my first appointment in a couple of weeks and i am having a hard time trying to figure out what treatment i should go with.
I recently had a contrast MRI and my neurologist got in to contact with me to say that compared with my last MRI scan there was no evidence of the lesions being active, so this limits my treatment options (i have had 3 relapses in the last 6 months, the 3rd one which i don’t know if it is a relapse as I have never had it before has been happening since a few days ago, its a burning pain across the top of my back originating from my spine area, would this count as a relapse?), the options of treatment that are available to me are: Teriflunomide, Dimethyl Fumarate, Interferon Beta, Glatiramer and due to the evidence of active MS clinically i would also be eligible for Alemtuzumab. Due to the lack of MRI changes i am not eligible for Natalizumab or Cladribine at this stage.
Thanks for taking time to read this, any advice would be greatly appreciated 🙂
