Thanks for that link, Sunny.
I can't imagine why a doctor would say that meds may not be necessary. Again, that is not what the research is saying. Please know that I am not saying this to be confrontational. I just want you to know what researchers are saying. I want you to be able to have the best chance possible at keeping your abilities and that ususally means a med therapy to slow down progression.
Make sure you discuss this point at your neuro appointment. If, after doing some research on your own, you are interested in a med. therapy, make sure you express that. This is your body and you have the right to manage it how YOU see fit.
Again, the best of luck to you!!! Keep us posted.
Love and prayers,
