The past few months I've increased to both weekend days and eod mid-week.
Sometimes this disease just makes me wonder that when the time is right it will just rear its ugly head just as it hides in the darkness no matter what we do to prevent it.
But I am now in a not so comfortable place, as just from last year, 2 new lesions. Adding up to 2 lesions the year before and the 2 initial ones, the doc is recommending I try some other med. Not enough Copaxone or just not effective... we'll never know.
And what he is proposing is hard to swallow... if I might say. He is proposing Tysabri, Gilenya of Tecfidera ! And I tought I wasn't really sick!! I kind of decided on Gilenya, but might just change my mind. So hard to feel like I am making the right decision.
Anyway, I wish you the best with that course of treatment. AS you probably know, there is a bit a serious reserarch showing that EOD is just as effective as ED.
how do you feel clinically? I stopped getting mri's as my last one was depressing yet I did not feel any worse clinically. I think lesions will come an go and as long as you feel ok then that's all that matters.
At the point I begin to slide clinically is when I will pursue HSCT. There has been way too much sucess going that route to ignore. Via the FB page it is one sucess after another.
Best of luck to you moving forward also!
Clinically, I feel just fine except for residual numbness on the sole of my feet and neuropathic pain to match. Other than that, I sure don't feel like my brain is getting any sharper, but that probably has more to do with being an overworked mother, professional and volumteer worker .
Than you for your response and best of luck to you too.
The other advantage to this is that some places are better to do in the morning. I am a side sleeper, so I always do hips in the morning so I don't have to sleep on a new Copaxone bump right away. Legs I prefer in the evening, so my keys aren't hitting the shot site all day.
