Your story places your neuro at the "pretty aggressive" end of the doctor scale, but not off the scale. Many docs are willing to treat CIS (clinically isolated syndrome) as if it were a MS dx, on the theory that the DMDs probably won't hurt anything (much), while MS will for sure degrade your CNS. Even so, she should have also told you that there is no way to know if Avonex or any other DMD will actually improve your sx.ping wrote:I've had pain & numbness in my legs & feet for a few years now. My primary Dr finally sent me to a Neuro. She in turn did an MRI, which showed 8-9 lesions. Then she did a spinal tap which she said came back negative. Still she is very unsure what it is. She wants to treat me for MS starting with Avonex for 8 weeks then do another MRI, but still no definited diagnosis.
