So March 2019...What have I done? NOTHING!!!
Had a MS flare mid Feb. and still not back to normal (for me). T3 and T11 were affected this time. You know the saying it gets worse before it gets better, well true for me. By the 2nd week of March my back mid way decided to go into spasms. It felt like I was being bent in two. My doctor upped my muscle relaxant to 20 mg 3 times a day and gave me Tylenol with codeine. No way can I take that. The first day I was sick for approx 12 hours after taking the dose of Tylenol. I think the Baclofin worked somewhat and with just taking reg. Tylenol I was able to get through it. Now I just have the chest ache and the back stiffness.. Wearing a bra is an exercise in pain management, so needless to say, don't wear one unless I need to go out. Which means I spend days inside.
Well I put on some weight at Christmas about 5 lbs. Since Feb another 10 lbs
I'm off work until further notice, disability is paying until June 8, so it's time to start again. So I've reset my account.
I've been enrolled in Neurology Day therapy, for a bit anyway, and have learned some helpful stuff. Started implementing some of it. It actually helps. Lets see if I can keep it up until i return to work and beyond.
Took my furbaby for a walk around the block last night. We made it!! Shortness of breath though both from the flare up and the lack of exercise. Only problem was my left thigh decided it was going to hurt in the middle of the night and wake me up. I had been experiencing a lot of this before my latest episode to nothing new really.
Okay... time to get on with it!!!
