JCV antibody

I just got lab results back and they indicated that I tested positive for the JCV antibody. Is this somerhing that I should be concerned about? Also, I have read that this is a side effect of using Tecifidera. Has anyone else experienced this?

Re: Post MS attack

The steriods were IV. 1000 mg over a six day period. Now the problem is I cannot keep food down at all. I almost passed out at work and was sent home.

Post MS attack

I recently had an MS attack that I was hospiatlized for 3 days with. After being on steriods, I have no energy and can hardly eat. This worries me as I feel worse after the attack than I did before. Has anyone else experienced anything like this?

Re: Diagnosed and confused

I was on Copaxone 40mg for about 9 months but the bruising and scars were extremely bad. Recently, my doctor put me on Tecfidera and I am waiting for that prescription. My entire body is in constant pain. I can feel it mostly in the joints though.
