We’re used to thinking that medicine is this thing where they go in, they look under the hood, they find out what’s wrong, they reconnect it, and you’re good to go. It was really frustrating to be having all of these weird symptoms that didn’t really seem related. The doctor that I was working with said, “Let’s start treating it for MS, and see if it responds to that treatment.”

00:00:27:10 - 00:00:43:08
Todd
So we did. We tried just nutrition and supplements for a while, and it was not having a significant enough impact that I wasn’t risking further nerve damage, so that’s when I started with injectable medication.

00:00:45:18 - 00:01:09:07
Todd
Well, it’s not a normal thing wanting to stick needles in your body, and when I first started taking the injectable medication, there were some symptoms that I had to work through and get used to. I would have these bouts of what I used to call a power cry, where I needed to weep. It would last about 20 minutes and then like a storm that passes,

00:01:09:12 - 00:01:30:21
Todd
I would just stop and I’d be like, “Oh, OK.” Another thing that would happen is I would get the shakes and chills. It can be in the middle of a summer day. All of a sudden just get really cold. I also had a dog at the time, and I used to call him a four-legged weighted blanket. Seventy pounds of canine is a very good therapeutic device.

00:01:32:11 - 00:01:54:10
Todd
So yeah, it took a while for me to get used to the symptoms and also to get used to the medication enough that that went away, and I think everybody has to find a medication protocol that fits their lifestyle. In my case, the single weekly injection is a good way to impact my life as little as possible and yet be as effective as possible.
