MY MS SPECIALIST WILL ONLY USE STEROIDS ON EXTREME EXACERBATIONS LIKE IF I WAS BLIND IN ONE EYE. I HAVE HAD TWO EXCERBATION-THE FIRST WAS BY FAR THE WORSE OF THE TWO MY LEGS WENT 60% NUMB. I ASKED HER ABOUT GIVING ME STEROIDS AND SHE SAID SHE WOULD'NT BECAUSE OF THE NEGATIVE EFFECTS THEY HAVE ON THE BODY. SHE SAID I WAS ON AVONEX AND I SHOULD GET BETTER WITHIN THREE WEEKS AND SHE WAS RIGHT. AFTER THE SECOND FLARE-UP SHE SWITCHED ME TO REBIF AND I'VE BEEN FLARE-UP FREE FOR OVER ONE YEAR. I RESPECT HER AND HER OPINIONS SHE IS A GOOD DOCTOR AT ONE THE BEST HOSPITALS IN OREGON "OHSU" AND SHE'S BEEN DOING THIS FOR 30 YEARS. AFTER READING EVERYONES POSTS ON DAILY STRENGTH IT SEEMS LIKE OTHER PEOPLES DOCTORS PRESCIBE STEROIDS FOR SOME VERY MINOR FLARE-UPS. MY QUESTION IS DO YOU THINK MY DOCTOR IS RIGHT IN RESERVING STEROIDS ONLY FOR EXTREME EXACERBATIONS AND WHAT IS TOUR DOCTORS TAKE ON THIS.
