In 2006 I got the diagnosis of Primary Progressive MS, and I got very worried.
I realise now that I should not have worried as much, I now know that worrying never makes positive differences.
Especially to MS, worry causes stress which is bad for MS that is the benefit of hindsight, which I did not have in 2006, then I was faced with the unknown.
I had an insensitive neurologist, and a disease that thousands have but no one knows the cause.
This lack of knowledge has been exploited by Pharmaceutical companies who have produced many drugs which they claim control and modify MS.‘’Many of these drugs have potentially serious side-effects especially in combination with other medications.’’
‘’It should be emphasised that none of these drugs are a "cure" for either MS nor for any of its symptoms.’’
‘’The only medications available at the moment either slow down the course of the disease at best or are palliative on its symptoms.’’
If the cause were known and drugs were developed that can help; I would love a drug that could help me.
Not drugs which have nasty side effects while making huge profits for the Pharmaceutical companies.
