I haven't had any further exacerbations/episodes. My doctors and I have treated this with high dose antibiotics and vitamin supplements for 10 months now.

Fingolimod?

I'm debating a couple of trials to go for. Fingolimod seems the most promising, but the Copaxone/Steroid one seems likely. Has anyone done the clinical trial with Fingolimod?

Thanks!
