Hello, I was dx in Feb this year. I went to sleep one night fine and when I woke up in the morning for work I got out of the shower and was sweating profusely and was extremely dizzy. I couldn't move and was out of work for about 4 weeks during which time I went to a doctor who dx me with vertigo, from there I went to an ENT (ear/nose/throat) who sent me for an MRI/Spinal tap and long story short...........here we are. I started with Avonex which seemed fine for a while but then things got worse. I got bells palsy and my whole right side of my body got numb so my doctor put me on Rebif. At the end of this week it will be 1 month on Rebif. Just wondering if anyone else has made the switch from Avonex to Rebif and how is it going. So far I don't see any change. it's very hard to walk and I've been using my left hand for everything (I'm right-handed) I'm just trying to stay positive but its pretty hard
Thanks for the post!! It does help. I have kinda been reluctant to go online and look for a forum but recently I've just been having a really rough time with all this and its just good to see there are people and hope out there. Its just hard going from doing whatever to being limited ya know. I can't play guitar anymore or anything really using my right hand Hell this post took me about 10 min to type left-handed
