I just got diagnosed with neuromyelitis optica this past Tuesday, i was wondering if anyone else had this. Im a little confused about it, in the sense that i dont know if its still considered a more severe form of MS or if its now considered a separate disease altogether. The treatment options are pretty hardcore though.
I did some research on the net, but of course it would be really helpful to hear people's experiences. I choose a treatment in a couple wks... aye craziness. I was diagnosed with MS in dec 06, and have been on copaxone for 7 mths now. Just when ur getting in your groove and accepting things, bam this diff form or separate disease (?) hits you.
