I was diagnosed with MS in August 2011. I then obtained a second opinion which it was confirmed October 2011. I then began to look for a physician that specialized in MS. In the first meeting with my physician, two of the first questions I asked is, 1.Will I have/need to give up wearing my heels.👠2.Will I have/need to give up having a glass of wine hear and there.🍷
January 2012 I started the medication Avonex once a week injection, and after two relapses within the year I was then prescribed Rebif three times a week injections. At that time I decided to discontinue taking the medication and pray on it and leave it in GODS! hands. I went nearly two years without medication or a follow up with my MS physician (who is great)! After agreeing to another MRI, I was informed that the lesions that I had prior were bigger and I had also developed three more.
I finally agreed with my physician to reconsider medication. I am currently taking the medication Aubiago pill once a day. I have good days and not so good days. YES! I still continue to wear heels and have a glass of wine now and then. I am currently interested/would like to become an advocate and/or be of any help that I can.
Thank You Much!
