Default Over 60 and on DMT

At age 61, some mild but disturbing symptoms (MS hug, arm tingle) prompted me to pursue diagnosis. It took six months and going around my obstructive PCP to finally get the MRI that showed spinal lesions. I then was able to see an MS doctor, who allowed me to choose my DMT. I started on Avonex, switched to Rebif after a year due to MRI showing continued inflammation. I'm doing well on Rebif and find it alarming to think that persons over 60 would be denied DMT.
