Since my RRMS became more active last year, my consultant offered me DMD’s and sent me away with DVD’s about Copaxone, Rebif and Avonex. I am really struggling emotionally with my MS at the moment and have spent most of the new year in hospital in relapse. I am seeing my neurologist tomorrow morning and am supposed to have decided which DMD I wnt to try but I just can’t make a decision. At the moment I have had to go back to work as I only get SSP and can’t afford any longer off work and the pain/fatigue is killing me even though Im only working very part time. I have 2 small children and finding that i am totally run off my feet. My husband doesn’t help very much. I am worried about coping with potential flu like symptoms of Rebif or Avonex, and having the time to take Copaxone. I watched all the dvd’s and they all showed people taking plenty of time to sit down and relax before giving their injection and I just can’t see me with that happening off an evening.
Looking for any REAL advice from REAL people who have been on any of these treatments. i know the response varies by individuals so what happens for one will be different for another but would just like to hear from anyone who has experience of DMD’s
