PML? Really?

Biggest scare ever! I found out that the medicine I’m taking for my Relapsing Remitting Multiple Sclerosis(stage 1),has a side effect that scares me. It can kill me. It’s called Progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML), it can cause a infection in the brain that can lead to death. I just took an MRI of my brain because I had some terrible out of control headaches and I’m waiting for the results and I’m so scared. What really gets me though is the headache medicine- Topamax I was put on . I checked to see if it would go with my MS medicine- Tecfidera and let me tell you Topamax helps the headache, but can cause blindness. What? If the medicine to help my case of MS leads to my eventual death I don’t know about ya’ll, but I want to see my kids faces before I die. I want to see their Halloween costumes, christmas gifts and pictures. I want to see it all.
Well, here’s to hoping and praying.
