It was a good visit. He confirmed that my MRI was clear of any new MS activity For my headaches, he prescribed a blood pressure medication (low dose) - Verapamil. I asked about magnesium for my headaches and told him that others I knew said magnesium helped them but he doesn't think that it helps...thought that was odd.
He ordered blood work and just received my results online today and it looks like my numbers are coming up. He said the numbers would have to keep getting low for 6 months before he would take me off the Tecfidera so I'm glad my numbers are going up.
For my spasms, because they start about an hour before I'm due for my dose, he prescribed 10 mg of baclofen that I can take every 2 hours instead of taking 20mg every 4 hours. We shall see how that works. I don't have high hopes but it's worth a shot. I also take Tegretol for my spasms once at night time because if I take it twice a day it makes my spams worse.
I think that is all. He did have a student nurse with him and she was very nice and they worked well together. Better than previous neuros that had student nurses that they let do everything before they even came into the room...no teaching there.
