MS Strikes

I was diagnosed with ms April 2012.

I had optic neuritis in my left eye. It was confirmed MS and I started Copaxone in May. I had 6-8 relapses in 18 MONTHS. I have now switched to the oral Tecfidera. It nice not doing the shot but remembering this pill every 12 hours is hard.

I have numbness and tingling in my hands and feet all the time. I have learned to just live with it. The South Dakota heat and humidity are awful!!!! I am thinking about a 2nd opinion at Mayo in Rochester MN. Anyone out there been there or think its worth it??

I am too active to have this and it is affecting my work and life.
