Here is my question:
Can I take Ocrevus without steroid administration?
That is a personalized decision with each clinician based on a person's experience with the drug and location of drug infusion. While this can be done, there can be risks of infusion reactions.

Is MS making me sad?
Here is My Question:
Why do I have days when I'm so sad and cry so much? Is it the MS or the glatopa injections? Before MS I never had this problem even during the worst days in my life. I never cried and always had control. I'm 57 and am still working and in good health.
Feeling sad and not being able to control certain emotional expressions such as crying, laughing or smiling are not necessarily related in people with MS. It is definitely important to first determine if these symptoms are a sign of depression. Even if your description of sadness is felt to be a symptom of depression, you could still be having difficulty controlling the ‘release’ of your emotions because of areas of the brain affected by MS. All of these symptoms are amenable to treatment, so talk to your MS specialist.
