Hi Ila,
I’m not sure if your question about “slowly progressing” was for me but I’ll answer. Unlike Cats, my disease seemed to come out of the blue with minor tingling in hands and feet progressing to more numbness and tingling and then affecting my balance and mobility. This all took about two years to peak. I do think the Rituximab treatment has been the only thing so far to slow (and seems in my case to have stopped) the progression. I have insurance through my work so I’m not sure about Medicare coverage but I’d imagine it would. Your doctor will be your best advocate. Take good care!
