I have noticed that there seems to be fewer people disabled now than there was years ago, largely in part because of treatment availability.


My neurologist is a local guy with two offices and he's very busy. He doesn't make a lot of money from the drug companies like my first one did. Dr Wynn, the first one was making about a million dollars per year from the drug companies the last time I checked (though he conducts clinical trials too.) Dr Ta, the current one made around twenty thousand. I don't think he's pushing people to take medicines unless it really seems necessary. He was ok with me stopping meds until I started getting worse again. My fatigue is pretty bad, my walking is worse and legs weaker (might be related to my back?) and I had to add another AD for my mood. I suppose the MRI will tell us something?


I've been looking at some Ocrevus groups online, those not managed by the drug company, and most seem to be doing pretty well without side effects.


I guess I'll wait and see what the MRI shows and then think about it some more.
