Hi i am new to all this as well (Sadly)
Briefly:- started August 2016. Burning right shoulder tingling in right arm them about 15 other symptoms - neck shock, weak left leg (was hobbling for about two weeks) loads of tingling, here and there, bladder and bowel issues, some dizzyness. Nothing else so i consider myself lucky compared to others. Some small symptoms persist.
First MRI November 2016. Several periventricular lesions (turned out to be 5 lesions in total 3 scarred over 2 active) second MRI Jan 2017 two further small and mild active ones.
Have been offered DMD but just am unable to commit my mind to this scenario. Hepatic injury, PML and reduced white blood cell count vs MS. I just cant get it out of my head that the current drugs are barking up the wrong tree (sorry ive read about everything possible on the Internet and im not suggesting that they don’t work and im not a scientist…Im just going to avoid this until ive got no choice??
I would like to hear a bit about others experiences prior to dx if thats ok? did you have anything weird many years before? Mine came out the blue never before anything like it. I haven’t been dx with MS yet but it is about 2mm away. Technically i have reached the criteria but with the two scans so close together i think he is holding off.
