From this study (2 weeks ago):
i feel Numbness at my hands, Tingle on all body especially my face and my feet aalot
From this study (3 weeks ago):
I have had ON in left eye for nearly 4 years and it didn't recover very poor vision. Recently had another attack of ON in right eye whilst stating out on Avonex (2/3 weeks into treatment). It seems very coincidental and I'm very concerned with reports that avonex could be linked to ON and exacerbate MS symptoms?.. Like ON in my case. Right eye has recovered and seems stable after methyl pred treatments on high dose orally (twice) over past 4 weeks but it's not over yet I fear.
