I was diagnosed with MS on December 2014. Since then I have had symptoms such as dizziness/vertigo, numbness and tingling sensations. All of these have been manageable, and I didn’t take any medication. On 17 June 2017 I had blurred vision and vertigo which lasted for a couple of hours. It did not last 24 hours so do not know if it would be classed as a relapse. When I discussed this with my MS nurse, I was told that it could linked to MS or dehydration because it was hot that night.
A MRI scan from July 2017 showed an area of currently active multiple sclerosis change in my neck and also an area within my brain.
At previous appointments, my MS nurse and neurologist have asked me to consider treatment which could limit the number of relapses. I had an appointment with my MS nurse on 27th December where we discussed treatments.
I am reluctant to take any treatment because all the symptoms I have suffered from have been manageable and I didn’t take any medication. However, I am aware that MS is unpredictable, and a relapse could happen at any time.
So my question is this : should I have treatment or not?
Any advice given would be appreciated.
