I’ve not been on for a while but just thought I’d let you know that I’ve finally been diagnosed with RRMS after 2 and a half years. At my last appointment with my neuro I told him I wasn’t happy with just accepting it was Recurrent Myelitis without at least checking one more time that there was nothing in my brain. Surprisingly he brought the MRI request pad straight out and long story short there were 2 lesions in my brain (he showed the MRI to us and I must admit that freaked me out a bit, two white blobs right in the middle of my brain, just wanted to reach inside and dig them out
Anyway I’ve been offered DMDs and I’m lucky in that I’m getting to choose which one. At the moment I’m thinking Avonex after seeing the new injector pen they have for it.
I feel relieved at the diagnosis, my Dad has MS and I’ve felt right from the start that I had it too so I think I got through quite a lot of the emotional stuff right at the start. Although I’m sure the minute I’m hit by a bad relapse (fingers crossed not!) I’ll not feel quite so positive.
