Thank you for your feedback. I did not come up with my decision lightly. And, I wouldn’t suggest this course of action to anyone else. But I feel it may be the best course of action for me.
I had my first attack in January. I became numb on my whole right side. Face, arm, and leg were severely affected. MRI results revealed numerous lesions in T2 area. Since then, I regained two thirds of mobility back and hoping to regain the rest back soon.
Since the diagnosis, I have changed my diet and began eating better. I have been regularly exercising, and cut out all products that contain Aspartame (just in case.)
I feel VERY fortunate that I have not suffered additional attacks since my first. I still keep a slim hope that it is not MS but something else (a little denial).
The main reason I just stop using Avenox was due to the severe side effects. Even after three months, the side effects never diminished. Plus, it bothered me to give so much money to a company that heavily overcharged for their treatment. Frankly, I just don’t trust them. Avenox literally ruin two days out of the week for me. That is not quality of life.
I was thinking of switching to Copaxone but I want to try the antibiotic route first. I want to go on Minocycline for six months and then do another MRI. This all depends whether my neuro will go along with this course of action. I will keep this site posted on the results.
