Maybe he's wording was not the best but at least now you are made aware of the sclerosis and can treat it properly!
At least it was discovered but your doctor has very poor bedside manner OP. Sorry about that :/
It's happy because he found it and can treat it before you get seriously affected by it.
Sorry Op, he could have worded that better. At least it has been discovered though and you can get on the track to recovery.
the treatment is in no way worse than the attacks. the side effects are in general very mild such as fever and nausea (same as most other medicines), yes with one medicine there is one very serious side effect but the chances of getting that are very slim and when on that treatment you get blood tests and MRIs done frequently to ensure that it can be treated before it becomes serious. so i would suggest stop trying to scare someone that is obviously upset over there new diagnoses when you don't know all the facts.
I wouldn't put off treatment if i was you...... the treatment will delay any further lesions from forming and lesson the symptoms of any further attacks.... the longer you put it off any damage that will be done could possibly be irreversible. personally, i've been on 3 different meds over the past 10 years... its just a matter of finding the one thats right for you....the one i've been on since 2009 is the one with the 'serious side effect' but as i said, your so closely monitored while on that that i'm happy to take the risk as i have the same quality of life as before i was diagnosed......other than being sleepy a lot!! and ya good luck to ppl trying to cure themselves with vegetables!
I said it often can be, not that it flat out is worse. I have an aunt and a cousin on different sides of the family, both with MS, both with fairly mild but regular attacks and they have both said before that the near constant nausea, headaches, anxiety, palpitations and shortness of breath regularly make them feel as if they treatment isn't worth at, as it doesn't actually treat all of the symptoms. The treatments given to my cousin (who is 27) have also made her infertile and to an extent has reduced her liver function. There is certainly more than one serious side effect, and more than one treatment that can cause it. I am in no way trying to scare anyone, I was speaking from the experience gained by caring for someone with MS everyday for 13 years before she died.
Is Copaxone Glatiramer acetate? She's never been on that. She's been on a few different ones due to the liver damage, and her doctors aren't 100% sure which one caused the infertility but they think it's most likely to have been Interferon beta 1b. She's been on that, Novantrone and Lemtrada.
Read online about how a plant based diet has stopped and even reversed it. Do some research on it. Doctors thought i had it.
I have a life long irreversible bone disease. My brother was trying the paleo lifestyle and swore it would fix my bone disease. I told him I find it pretty offensive that he'd say that and he realized how disrespectful it was. Don't tell people crap like that. A healthy lifestyle will likely help, but it's not dependent on a certain diet.
