I am 24 years old. I am suffering from a neurological disease and due to this I am getting weak day by day. My toes are gone almost numb since last two years and the same things are now happening with the upper limbs. I had this disease from childhood, but in a progressive state. So, with time my health degraded constantly. It started affecting my lower limbs. Now, I cannot even walk or stand properly. Now, it started affecting my upper limb as well. I cannot lift heavy objects due to weakness in grip and cannot do any manipulation by fingers quickly such as typing, writing, etc. I have been treated in various hospitals since my childhood. Currently, it was predicted as vasculitis neuropathy and getting treatment accordingly. I have gone through various treatments till now, but unfortunately nothing worked. Now, my doctor suggested me an injection called Rituximab, which can possibly stop the growth of this disease. The two dosages of this injection are quite expensive and due to this we are worried that how much safer is this injection to me. Hence, I thought that I should take an opinion from you before taking this injection. Could you please suggest me your opinion by looking at my attached reports, Is there any possibility to cure this rare disease or at least to stop the growth of this disease? Should I go for this Rituximab injection? I know, it would be a challenging task, but please spend some time and share your thoughts. I have attached my reports, prescription and life history from childhood. Any suggestions would be really helpful to save my life.

Thank you doctor.
First, I want to tell you that I have been treated in such manner by doctors. They gave different dosage of supplements to reduce my weakness. Once due to this my weight got increased to 60 kg from 52 kg. I had to do lots of exercise to get rid of that extra fat on my belly. If you still think I should follow your 12 week plan, then can I continue my current medication Azoran 50 mg and Zincovit tablet?
