L Dopa

I have been reading articles about the use of L Dopa to relieve some of the spasticity caused by Parkinsons. My main MS related issue is the spasticity in my legs. Bad, getting worse. None of the "drugs' I have been prescribed help in any way. Has anyone tried L Dopa for spasticity relief?

Hubby may start on Tecfidera, questions

Hi!

Loss of appetite?

Started Rebif about 4 weeks ago. I've done really well with it. No injection site side effects. No serious pain. But I've noticed that I'm not as hungry as I used to be. I've been eating less, and when I do eat, I get full really quickly. I used to have a HUGE appetite too.
