I've been very fortunate to have my parents out for the past week. I think it has helped lift my spirits in the sense that I am not at home by myself all the time with too much time to think. I guess having my kids home for an extra 2 days because of storm days has helped a bit too. LOL
Unfortunately my symptoms haven't gone away and are starting to get slightly worse. My left leg is pretty weak and the buzzing down my back returned yesterday evening. I can even feel a bit of "fuzziness" in my lips.
I have talked to the MS clinic over the past week and had to go for a urine test, because apparently a bladder infection can cause symptoms, however that came back negative. They called again yesterday to see if things had improved but with the current prognosis things are looking a little bleak. I was told that most relapses last 2-3 weeks. I wish!! Mine have lasted more like 3-4 months! Last time I took steroids via IV for 5 days after I had had symptoms for about 7 weeks. This time it has been 3 weeks and based on things still deteriorating I opted for taking steroids again. Especially since I am heading to Thompson for Spring Break with my parents.
So today I started on 1250mg of Prednisone. I am taking 25 pills per day! Thankfully it's only for 3 days! Hopefully this helps and the inflammation goes down within the next week or two. It would be nice to be able to feel the ground properly again and not feel like I'm going to fall over or have my leg give out on me every time I need to go somewhere.
