I was diagnosed with MS in 2003 (at 15 yrs old). I have been on Copaxone, Avonex, Rebif, Tysabri, and Gillenya. I liked the Gillenya, since it was a pill, and meant no needles, but I developed several weird infections, and am now off of MS meds all together, untill we can find out which med to try next. I also have Glaucoma (diagnosed at age 12), and have had three surgeries for that this year. I had to have a tube placed in my right eye. It became severely infected, and had to be removed. I then developed a perirectal abcess, and have had two surgeries on that. Could the infection and the abcess be caused from the Gillenya. or is this some freak occurence. Neither my neuro nor my opthamologist really know what to do with me. Has anyone had anything even close to this???? I am feeling like I am out of options for both my glaucoma and my MS!!
