Yeah, seems there are quite a few of us in this ocean.
It is really hard to know what to do. Altho once I was diagnosed I really didn't question going onto one of the CRAB drugs, but then I'm basically a chicken. I wouldn't have the courage not to.
Plus, I'm trying very hard to give management of MS the best shot I can (no pun intended
) with available information. It seems for some people with RRMS the CRAB drugs do decrease the number/severity of relapses and delay progression to disability. With your history it sure sounds like you're in the RRMS group. So, I guess my advice would be to give Rebif some serious thought.
I've been "checking out" MS since last fall when I was diagnosed and it seems to me there are a fair number of people who advise starting treatment sooner rather than later. Hopefully others who know more than I do will chime in here.
Do let us know what you decide and I hope you're still feeling good.
