    Does anyone have MS and also ET ?

    Hi i am new to this board. looking for people who also have ET and MS.
    i am 33, only taking anagrelid for the ET, not taking anything for MS.
    Want to get pregnant. doctors say i should get interferon but some say it only helps ET but
    will make MS worse.

    kind regards Julia

    Hi. I have MS but not ET..however, I think you are mistaken about interferons. Interferons were some of the first MS drug prescribed- BetaSeron and Rebif are both Interferons. They are still prescribed today as one of the first line of defense to prevent MS from progressing.

    Interferons do have their drawbacks- and you can read about them and MS or talk to your Neurologist.

    They will NOT make MS worse and if you are not taking anything for your MS, I would suggest reading about the 9 different therapies available and decide which one you want to get on.,..don't leave MS to chance! Your doctor is correct about getting you on something.

    ET is a clotting disorder and is not related to MS; how each drug will react to your ET is something only your Neuro should be talking to you about.

    Good luck!
