Hi there, I’m new here and I hope I am typing this question in the right place.
I was diagnosed with “mild MS” 2 years ago, and my symptoms are mainly sensory. I was not offered medication and I was told to wait and see, and cross my fingers that it would not get worse. I’ve been ignoring my symptoms and getting on with things. Tingling, numbness, poor coordination are now “normal” to me. Infact, I’ve forgotten what “really normal” feels like, and if I am honest my symptoms are more extensive - though still only sensory. More recently my limbs become tired much quicker despite being very fit.
I am looking for information about the new medical thinking that was announced this year regarding early treatment as I’m now wondering after the announcement this year if I should be on medication. I’m worried damage is building up gradually.
My question is, are neurologists now prescribing medication for mild MS where they would not have done so in the past?
I have a nero appointment in a few weeks, but I’m curious as to any changes that have occurred in the treatment procedure in the last few months. If I push for it am I likely to get medication, or are they still saying no?
