I hate when you read the side effects of the meds that the dr put you on and most of them mimic your MS symptoms! How are you supposed to know the difference and when to call your dr?
One example: Tysabri has a risk of causing a dangerous brain infection called PML. PML symptoms can look a lot like MS!! So if I am just having a bad day and my leg feels weak, it’s always in the back of my mind, questioning whether it’s really just a bad day or is this the onset of PML!!
I have resigned myself to just deal with it and move on! What else can you do? I refuse to sit and worry about it anymore! I figure that whatever happens we will deal with accordingly! Worrying about it is just added stress that nobody needs added on to regular life! I am also very happy with Tysabri and the improvements it’s made so far in my MS world! I knew the risk when I decided to go with it so if it happens, it happens!
That is just one example of side effects mimicking MS. There have been others! So what are you supposed to do? I have made my decision about it! What about you? What do you do when this happens?
