Hi, I'm new on here and have just introduced myself in the new member's area. I'm currently waiiting for a diagnosis but am expecting to be told I have MS (mri shows multiple scattered lesions/lumbar shows the oligiclonal bands/I have optic neuritis & numbness/tingling) My question is, if I have got ms, how soon would I need to start taking medication? I'm breastfeeding my 8 month old and would ideally like to wait til he's no longer b/feeding before I take any medication's. Do you have to start injections straightaway? Also, do you get to choose which drug you take? Copaxone sounds best to me? Also, do all the injections cause weightgain? I have so many questions!
