Wow that sound awful. I have been on Copaxone for just a little over a year. I too have some mild anxiety problems. I think partly genetics partly just who I am. It is a control thing for me. Having control issues and MS, not a great combo.
I am so glad to hear that you are looking for a new neuro. You don't need to be feeling guilty on top of your anxiety. Sheeesh have some more anxiety. I really think you need to talk to a doctor though. What about your GP? My GP is great about this sort of thing. My neuro is quite a distance from me and although she is readily accessable by phone or e-mail, I find it easier to just see my GP. He keeps in contact with the neuro.
Ok I am rambling here, the bottom line is that you are suffering. You need some relief. I know you are not happy to take new/ more meds but talk to a doctor.
I am not seeing an increase with my anxiety. I do exerercise quite a lot. I have found that getting my heart rate up 5 or more times a week really helps my frame of mind. This is a bit new for me. I have been on an aerobic bent for about a year now. I am currently adding some strength training to this mix. My point being this helps my anxiety.
Also, just because you are feeling anxious does not absolutely mean the it is caused by the copaxone. What about talking to a therapist?? Could you be feeling more anxious because you are fairly newly diagnosed?? Good luck with this. I truly hope you get some relief soon. Anxiety is miserable.
Love and prayers,
