I am an outgoing person with a witty disposition. Lately, though, I have been struggling to come to terms with what it means for my family and myself to be diagnosed with MS.
Dx... 10/01/11 called it clinically isolated syndrome, doctor decided to DX it MS in 01/2012, began Copaxone injections in january 2012, developed optic neuritis in 05/12 did course of treatment with steroids, never regained vision in my R.eye, have had most symptoms on R.side of my body except both my legs tingle always since onset. Very worried about my future. . . Dr. says copaxone isn't working (duh) she finally sent me for my 2nd set of MRI a year and 1/2 after Dx and I have two new inactive lesions in my brain and a worrisome rather large lesion on my spine in the back area (not neck area) ...I have lost faith in my Neurologist's care of me and my situation so I have changed Neurologists. Good Luck to anybody dealing with this (and / or anything else really) I know it's a hard row to hoe but, we have to hang in there and never give up on ourselves.
