Answer this question! How many doctors do you know that actually call YOU because he is worried about you and wants to take a more proactive approach? In my experience my answer would be ZERO. Except for the one doctor I have now who is my MS Specialist. He actually called me to come in because he was concerned with my numerous flare ups this year and doesn't want to wait around to just see what happens. He wants a more proactive approach and desires me to be flare free for years at a time. I have to admit though when he did call me I became extremely nervous. Doctors only call when something is wrong. I know having this many flare ups is not good but still having him call me made me think it was going to be drastically serious. But I am grateful for finding this wonderful doctor who has dedicated his whole life just to treating people with MS and his MS research institute. I am grateful he is so caring and proactive because that is so rare in today's world.
I have to get another MRI to see where I stand. Also, some blood work to test for this certain virus in case he wants to switch my meds. He is thinking about switching my daily shots to this once a month infusion medication. I admit not having to take daily shots would be a blessing but the possible side effects of this infusion is down right scary. I don't know if I want to do it because of that. He told me not to get ahead of ourselves yet. That we will see once the MRI comes back. So naturally I am worried about that. I don't like taking daily shots but it's alot better than risking those potential side effects. So now I am hoping the MRI shows some improvement. I trust him. He is one of the leading doctors in the MS field. It's just all scary and overwhelming.
Thankfully I am beginning to feel better once again since the recent flare up. Slowly getting back to my normal self. Just got to hope for the best now.
I would love to hear any feedback on any doctors you may have that are actually caring such as mine. Like I said it's a rare find now-a-days.
