I have been taking Copaxone for 5 years now and I am so sick and tired of injecting everyday. I saw the doctor today about getting fingolimod but apparently I don’t qualify despite having a relapse at Christmas. They are going to book me in for an MRI to see what is going on and to see if I have any new lesions but I feel like having another relapse on Copaxone is going to help my case. I know that what I am considering is possibly irresponsible and unfair to the people that can’t get DMD’s but I don’t feel like I have a choice. I know how to bring on a relapse (in theory) but I have so many thoughts running through my head - what if fingolimod doesn’t work, what if I can’t reccover from this relapse or what if this is the one that puts me in a wheelchair
I guess I don’t really have any questions but would like to hear other opinions on the subject.
