This morning, I have a follow-up appointment with my neurologist. I was scheduled to see her again this August, but the appointment has been moved up, due to having multiple severe post-injection reactions to Copaxone.
Each time that I see my neurologist, I need to complete a brief series of neuropsychological tests. They are used to ascertain if I’ve developed increased MS dysfunction. Thankfully, I’ve achieved acceptable results to date with my completion of these tests.
These tests assess a variety of functions, including my speed of information processing and manual dexterity. I’m also required to complete a timed, 25-foot walk. I feel very blessed to still have my results fall within normal limits, given that I have had MS for decades at this point.
I have a lot of issues to discuss with my neurologist this morning. First, I need to determine what my options are, with respect to disease-modifying medications for treatment of my relapsing-remitting MS. I also need to inform her that my fatigue no longer appears to be responding to Amantadine.
