Kaelin had her first neurology appt in December. After having an MRI is diagnosed with SM. The doctor put her on Prednisone. I have been reading everything I can find and I am worried because Prednisone should not be used as a long term solution. I plan to have an in depth discussion with the neurologist (next appt on Wednesday) but could someone tell me what the alternatives are. I am a little worried that we jumped to Prednisone too early. Kaelin has been on anti-inflamatories (prescribed by orthopedic doctor) but at the time I did not realize what was wrong with her and I did not understand the symptoms. I plan to discuss in detail with doctor. I would appreciate any information.
