Maybe I will use another disease modifying medicine

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I hope all is good.

Perhaps I am just having a very bad day which is unfortunate because today is a nice day (temp wise) in what seems an unending winter.

I hate this MS, I hate the peripheral foot (both feet) neuropathy that comes along with it.

I still use the walker as I do not want to have another fall.

I saw the VA neurologist about a month ago and new MS "medicine" was decided upon.  I have used this particular one before and stopped due to side effects however I decided to give it another try.

It is full of poisons (my opinion) but is a synthetic/synthesized myelin and myelin is what the body destroys.  What to do, what to do...

The "medicine" has been in the fridge for awhile, it is something I have to inject in my stomach area; the injection does not hurt.

After the injection, one just sits calmly for a bit and carries on.

What is my problem???  I wish I knew.

Oh well, I will figure this out.

Have a nice day fellow Veterans  😀

I cannot say I know much about MS but I know a lot about neuropathy.  It is a bear.  Hang in there.

Hi Vetquest,

Thank you for your words of encouragement, I appreciate it.

Also, thank you for joining the club!!!

Do you take any medicine that helps with neuropathy?  My neurologist does not have anything.

Anyway, thank you again and I hope you have a nice day.  😀

I take Lyrica and OxyContin for my neuropathy.  I take the Lyrica because it helps with the burning.  Gabapentin is supposed to help too.  I take the oxy because the pain keeps me up at night if I do not.

Hi Vetquest,

Thank you for the information about the medications.  I will ask my neurologist if he will consider prescribing them.  I appreciate your response.

Have a good day!   😀
