Gee, thanks Diane.
I had a rough go with my neuro during diagnosis, but I was somewhat less concerned after this visit.
In addition to concern about the steroids and calcium, he was very clear that he doesn't routinely do MRIs unless warranted to guide treatment. His take, while MRIs give you info about changes, they don't tell you how the person is doing, which he thought was most important.
His take on Antegren was that the MRI data was quite impressive, but he hasn't seen any data yet on its impact on disability, which is "what matters".
Interesting for a neuro I thought.
