Hi Everyone!

Postby littlered13 » Thu Feb 17, 2011 4:07 pm

My name is Jamie, I am 28, and was diagnosed in 2008.

The road that led to my diagnosis started in December of 2007 when I had a bout of optic neuritis.

For the first 2 years, I was on Rebif. For the last 8 months I have been on Copaxone. I think the Copaxone is great other than the fact I have had 8 to 10 reactions from it. My Neuro wants to put me on Tysabri...but I am not too sure about that.

I am looking forward to meeting you all. :D

Welcome Jamie. Research Tysabri before going on it. Don't just listen to what your doc tells you.

I have been trying to do that to the best of my ability. I just have always had a bad gut feeling about going on tysabri. I don't care what any doctor says, someone's gut feeling is always right.

welcome to TIMS little :)
take control of your own health
pursue optimal self care at least as actively as a diagnosis
ask for referrals to preventive health care specialists eg dietitians
don't let suboptimal self care muddy any underlying diagnostic picture!
