I got my first syntoms in July with pain in my left leg and weakness in the right leg/arm. I had a MRI which showed a big lesion on my spinal cord C4 - C5 - C6 and C7. As they only found lesion there, and the fact that I am Brazilian and I have lived there for most part of my life (I am currentlhy 25 and I moved to the UK last year for my post-graduate studies), made the doctors to also suspect parasits that attack the central neurological system. As they could not find any parasitis in my blood, they give me pulso therapy and as I was feeling better I could go home.
Only a week home I started to feel weak again. I initially thought it could be normal and tried to rest more than normal and wait for my body to heal. But I started also feeling pain in my right hand after a few days (new syntonm) so a week ago I decided to look for help again. They gave me another MRI which showed that the lesion in my spinal cord actually increased and now I also have lesions in my brain. Because of that, they were able to complete the diagnosis and conclude that it is MRI and they classified me with a 'highly active’ relapsing MS. I am receiving the second pulso therapy now and they want me to start with the disease modifying therapies as soon as possible - they suggested Cladribine (Mavenclad).
Anyway, I am very worried because they said I had two crisis in like two-three months. I am worried that I may have one of the “bad” MS. Someone else had something similar and managed to get good results with this treatment?
