Evening All,I just had a quick butchers at your CV to find out a few things before I start blethering.Just to put my reply into context a bit of me me me.I was diagnosed in sept 2001 as RRMS and started a very gradual abseil into absurdity.In feb 2008 I was bumped up to SP, AND THEN was put on Copaxone after a course of MITOXANTRONE. I took it for 14 months and my abseil continued,so being a good boy thought I’ll save the NHS £5000 a year and stopped it.I cannot walk now.can just about transfer from bed,powerchair,bog etc.but strive to get out everyday on ‘Davros’ the powerchair.
RRMS, SP, PPMS. etc are labels that people attatch to us but we all have our own version of MS,and it looks like the NHS,Drug Companies et al are moving the goal posts as to which drug goes with which of THEIR labels.I have no regrets about stopping the Copaxone,'cos it did nothing for me,but would suggest if you can be @rsed to inject it you’ve got nothing to lose by using it.
The only way that any of us could know what was helping,would be if we had an identical twin who had never left our side,was diagnosed on the same day and was not given any drug treatment.That’s a bit unlikely so …
Oh,the abseiling thingy comes from nobody having told me I’m not still a climbing instructor.
