I tried to get a neurology close to home, when I went to see him. He just looked at me and said you don't have MS. Your too old. I knew I made a big mistake by coming to him. He looked at my MRI and said the spots are not old enough. I left his office. I will never go back. I went back to my first doctor. My legs are knotting up,but I was told that wasn't MS. I'm so mixed up on what is MS. I'm on capoxone medicate.
I think you posted earlier that your first neuro diagnosed you with MS, but the second neuro denied the diagnosis. Is that right?
So you have gone back to the neuro who thinks you do have MS and who put you on Copaxone?
Your leg complaint sounds like the spasticity so many of us have. This can be treated successfully with a muscle relaxer such as Baclofen. Have a talk with your neurologist about medications that ease muscle tightness, there are several to try.
