Hello, I'm 21 and by now it has been 1 year since I was discovered with MS. I was in hospital, first they gave me corticosteroid infusions and let me home, from this time my life changed extremly! Since then I was completly different person, and after some months I began beta interferon therapy. That made my situation even worse- depression, bad thoughts, worries about future etc. NOBODY tried to help me, doctors said it's normal to have depressions and just gave me some antidepressants, I also visited psychiatrist and he did the same. But I decided to stop this. I stoped with betaferons and I didn't even take their medicines (nor antidepressants). At that time I had no idea what to do, I didn't know OMS book, so I tried homeopathy... Now i'm really happy, I feel much better than before, physically and mentally. As you probably guess, doctors say I'm not normal and I'm hazarding with my health. Some weeks ago my father gave me OMS book and I really want to try diet, but now my MRI results came out wrong, few more lesions, and doctors push me to take another infusions in hospital, but I don't like it. Till now I was feeling great, but all they do is making me stressed. I decided for alternative therapy (homeopathy and diet) but in the same time I'm realizing that this therapy may not be right in future and I worry. What will I do when I refuse treatment now and than I will need it sometimes. What do you think, can doctors reject treat me, if suddenly something went wrong, or can my insurance company reject provision of another treatment? Should I lie to them, that I'm taking their medicine, but actually not doing that? Thank you so much!!! I really don't know what I should do
There are other drug treatments that doesnt have the same sideeffects as the interferons. You might want to discuss with your doctors, and insurance company, if Copaxone, or one of the new tablet treatments, is an option for you ass drugtreatment can be very important in the beginning if the illness is rather active.
It is also of great importance to get your level of vitamin D up to level as soon as possible.
Then you should really start the OMS lifestyle. Read the book and use this webpage and forum and you are most likely to do very well.
