Should I start treatment with Avonex? Dx by 1 of 2 doctors

Postby nicolasmcdc » Sat Apr 12, 2014 6:56 pm

Hello. I had optic neuritis confirmed by an MRI. The symptoms started March 1st, on March 13th i was treated with ev corticoids and now I am seeing very well. At this moment my MRIs showed NO LESIONS (1.5 Tesla MRI). Then on April 6th I started feeling ¨weird¨ my right leg, specially my right foot and developed dropped foot (could not walk on heels). One doctor suggests to start treatment with interferon beta now, since he thinks that I do have MS but I could have invisible lesions and and the other doctor wants to wait. What should I do? Any recommendations?

Did you have a spinal MRI or just one of the brain?
