    I am a 43 year old female with M.S. failed Avonex have been on Tecfidera for 3 months. I am having severe pressure in my spinal cord, hair loss, muscle pain, and fatigue. My primary concern is the migraine and blurry vision. I'm very afraid this is PML. I am do for new imaging in a week and will see my Neurologist end of Feb. I showed a C3 lesion and mylan buildup at the same area.. What can I do? Are these side effects of the new therapy or a new problem? I live 7 hours from my specialist and my primary care doctor knows very little about M.S. due to insurance, I have no choice but to stay where I am for care. I live in a very small community less than 3000 and the closest town to me is 26 miles away. Thank You for your time. I am really hoping to reach out and find help in the online M.S. community and to relate to other M.S. patients like myself. Thanks again hope to get a response soon
