Re: can you tell if a ms episode is coming
I also agree, this could very well be MS and the doctor is smart to start you on Copaxone and do another MRI in 6 months...I am on Rebif- and like Anxious, do not have any side effects. I love my drug...
As far as the onset of a relapse, I usually get a few days notice. i feel weak, or dizzy- my brain feels disconnected from my body-Ive been on rebif for 4 years and havent had any real relapses since 6 months after starting it....bad days, yes- but relapses which needed real attention, no. However, even when the bad days come, I know they are coming...the symtoms are the same- extreme fatigue, dizziness and balance issues- usually triggered by either being sick, working too many hours or a very stressful situation. By getting additional sleep and doing my best to relieve the stress and cut back on my hours (I work over 50 a week and go to school full time)- I can usually avoid a full fledged attack.
Good luck to you...its a manageable disease.
