I was diagnosed about 3 weeks ago and still havent started my injections of Copaxone. Is it really going to make that much of a difference if I do the injections? I am already disabled. I am severely dizzy, cant stand for even a full minute, cant do housework, or even bath by myself. The dizziness is keeping me on the couch or in bed all the time. Even when Im just sitting...Im dizzy. My legs, arms, hands and fingers are extremly weak from lack of use( about 5 yrs now) and I just dont know enough about MS to know anything. Are the injections going to make me not dizzy anymore so I can work on getting back the strength in my legs and arms again? If not, and Im still just going to just have to sit on the couch all day, then why take the injections. Im just totally confused and scared and I honestly just dont know what to do. Any advice or comments would be so appreciated. Im lost. Thank you so much.

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
