Here is My Question:
I have black holes on my MRI with stem lesions. Will my vertigo and bathroom issues go away with Ocrevus?
Whether your "vertigo and bathroom issues" have the potential to remit (i.e. go away) has more to do with the exact cause and duration of the symptoms. Both vertigo and impaired urination require evaluations for causation in most MS patients, particularly those over 40, since other conditions can cause similar symptoms. If determined to be related to MS, it is rare for these symptoms to go away spontaneously once the symptoms have been present continuously for over a year.
