Hi, I'm new with to this forum. My name is Traci and I was diagnosed with RRMS April of last year. I was immediately put on Tysabri for treatment and I have not had any relapses or new lesions so I guess it's working as it should.
My dilemma is I didn't have any noticeable symptoms before I was diagnosed. I had a severe cases of double vision that prompted the MRI that came back with my diagnosis.
Since starting treatment I have also started getting more and more noticeable symptoms. The past few months they have become pretty bad, for me.
The worst one is the nerves on my left side is very hyper sensitive and from my knee down it feels like I'm wearing a boot 3 sizes too small. I also get severe pain off and on that will last for a few days and go away.
My neurologist says it's not a relapse but symptoms that come with MS. I was put on gabapentin but that's made me gain weight and I don't need extra weight. I hate the feeling and don't know what to do at this point.
