Hello, I went to 2 doctors and was told they cannot say for sure that I have MS based on the factors. I have the lesions in 2 of the 4 areas in my brain only nothing in spine or neck typical of MS. No bands on my spinal tap, high igg for inflammation, and one flare-up numbness in right side of mouth, lips, cheek, tongue which was treated with prednisone steroid.
One dr told me to start Ocrevus practicing 25+ years, another dr told me if it were him he would wait but I am afraid if it is MS, which both doctors believe it is but cannot say for certain with the criteria, if I get another flare-up I am scared the effects could be permanent. The first doctor said Tecfidera another choice but he would choose Ocrevus. Second dr said he would personally wait but it could be years before something happened and taking a chance of a flare-up and lasting condition or he recommended if I wanted to start something Tecfidera. Does anyone have any recommendations?
Has anyone had CIS? Did it turn into MS? After how long? Did you treat right away? Thanks for your help!!!
