my name is Nicki, I was diagnosed with ms six years ago and I’ve basically buried my head in the sand since then. I went to see my consultant today and he has suggested that I go on Fingolimod. I have been on avonex since September 2009 and I’m worried about changing. The side effects of Fingolimod concern me but the long term prognosis looks better than it would be with avonex. I saw there were some threads on Fingolimod last year but a lot can change in a year. Does anyone have any experience or advice about what to do. I think I know what I am going to do but thought I would wsk advice first.
