Hello and wanting feedback

Hello from Singapore.

Hi everyone,

39 yo male here.
I starting experiencing constant dizziness/lightheadness in Apr 2015, went to see a nuero and had an MRI done on my brain in Sep the same year.
Was told by the nuero he could not find anything and the MRI was the best test possible.

Starting around Feb 2016, I started experiencing numbness and 'needles' on my scalp, arms and feet when I wake up.
Went back to the neuro, ...

Making treatment decisions - new to the forum

Hi, just signed up as I'm looking for some input/support on choosing a treatment option, I have rrms but have been told it's fast acting so I 'shouldn't delay' starting treatment. They have offered me the option of basically anything available (UK) but are pushing towards Tysabri or Lemtrada both of which seem to have fairly terrifying side effect potential.
Would appreciate anyone's personal experiences having taken either of the above and how you actually ...

Hi from NZ. Anyone on Tecfidera and Epilim/Depakote?????

Hi. I was dx in April this year and started Tecfidera three weeks ago. Since then my side effects have been minimal unless I don't eat enough then feel hideous. My major complaint is that I'm putting on weight. I have maintained my weight last three years eating the way I eat now so this is very frustrating. I'm also on Epilim for epilepsy. I'm wondering if anyone out there has experienced the two drugs ...
