I am new to blogs and forums etc so forgive me if I dont get it right first time
I was diagnosed with MS in the summer of last year. Initially I was on Copaxone daily injections but I gave up on them just before Christmas for various reasons.
I am about to start on Tecfidera and I’ve read up on it all but I have one question? What is the reason behind the blood tests? From reading between the lines I have guessed that the medication affects your white blood cells which can make you more prone to illness/infection??
Also I am only 30 and have a 3 year old daughter. Obviously MS is a progressive disease and will worsen over time. Has anyone who has lived with it for a long time have any advice on what I can do personally i.e. diet etc to try and fight this! I am quite a stubborn lass and I have the view that I dont have MS, it has me and good luck to it as I dont go down easy
I hope you are all well and I look forward to nay replies,
