Me and multiple sclerosis

Me and multiple sclerosis

We’ve had a turbulent relationship over the last 19 years to say it mildly. There have been many one-sided fights. I’ve told my story before bug sometimes it’s worth repeating.

The multiple sclerosis attack that pushed me over

The multiple sclerosis attack that pushed me over

I was starting to “leak through” my current multiple sclerosis therapy back in 2014. I had been on basically Betaseron most of the time until I switched to Gilyenya in 2010. I was switched for the “leaking through” thought. It was holding me on the relapsing remitting sides mostly. I’d have maybe one or two per year on all the drugs. However I would worsen without a so-called attack. My current symptoms would worsen. Back in 2014 the decision was…
