I was diagnosed with MS back when I was 14. I’m now 24 so it’s been a good 10 years.
I was on Avonex between the ages of 14 and 20, but then I stopped the medication as I had had no relapse throughout the six years. Well, four more years have passed without a relapse, until August, when I had a minor relapse again.
So I am now looking into medication options. Looks like I’ll be put on Copaxone (would love to hear about your experience with it, if anyone’s got some?).
I also changed my diet completely and have been vegan since August. Has anyone else found that eliminating animal based food from their diet has helped with MS?
Anyways, wanted to share my story and discuss a bit about veganism & about Copaxone. So just putting it out here.
Thanks and stay strong, everyone!
