    • Hi Shelley
      Welcome – loads of info, research & experiences on here.
      You can also start topics – my fellow moderator Ed Tobias explains ‘Posting Items’ at the top of each Forum.
      As you’re new to MS sure you’ll first look at the ‘Newly Diagnosed Forum’. As one of the ‘Patient Columnists’ I wrote one sparked by a post ‘An Open Letter to a Newly Diagnosed Patient’ https://multiplesclerosisnewstoday.com/colum ns/2019/08/07/open-letter-advice-newlydiagnosedforums/
      Cheers John

      • Hi Shelley –

        Welcome to the forums.

        I’m not a health care professional so I won’t give you medical advice. But I can tell you that many of the best MS-specialist neurologists believe it’s best to hit the illness early with the most effective treatment possible. Ocrevus is considered one of those. Though it comes with some risks it’s slowed the progression of the MS in thousands of people. You and your neuro have probably weighed the benefits versus the risks and it sounds like his advice is solid.

        Good luck, and let me know if you have questions.

        Ed
