hope youve all been okay since i was last here(many many moons ago)?
i was diagnosed a decade ago and had a brief fling with inteferons which i found hard to tolerate so got dumped by my neuro a few years ago. i was monitored by ms nurses until a rather nasty relapse at easter. i was re-referred to a neurologist who i met today. He was a very nice chap but he wants me to have an LP but i now can’t work out why?
The original neuro I saw was happy to diagnose off the back of symptoms and MRI and I queried this with the new neuro who isnt querying the diagnosis but kind of side stepped the question of why I needed one? Can anyone explain why i would need one if he is happy with diagnosis?
He is also reccomending tecfedera or tysbari, has anyone got any views on these,
all info gratefully received as i’ve been ignoring all things ms related for too long.Ignorance (or denial) can sometimes be bliss but now need to get clued up again
