I was diagnosed about two years ago after a fall in the garden which resulted in a broken ankle ( I also have Osteoporosis) . After my initial appointment with my Neurologist I realised I had many of the MS symptoms for years. I was working full time when I was diagnosed but experiencing a lot of pain from my waist down. Eventually it became so bad I had to make a choice between my health and my job... my health won.
I was first put on Tecfedera which reduced me to a couch, I felt very nauseous and totally unwell. I was then put on Gilenya, no obvious side effects, but Neurologist has told me I am positive for "JOP" (not sure if thats right terminology) which means I am more at risk for progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy .
I am now in a battle with myself as to whether I want to continue with the Gilenua or just be drug free.
