I finally bit the bullet and opted for a 3 day steroid infusion. For anyone out there with RR MS, this seems to work great to shorten the duration of a flare up. I felt a lot more comfortable and able to do stuff yesterday. 3 years ago

When I went to see my doc about this latest multiple sclerosis exacerbation, mainly to touch base, she suggested I get a new neurologist, one I can communicate better with than my old one. I agreed and have a consult with an MS specialist at Stanford.
I also realized that I’ve done best over the past month when I’ve either been more active and/or taken Progesterone, an experimental therapy for MS. There’s a chance that it’s coincidence, but anything reasonable is worth a try. The standard therapies are just too imprecise and primitive, and I’m not desperate enough to go that route. 3 years ago
I’m going to try to be smart about working around the health problems I’m having now. First, I’ll think in terms of this one flare up (multiple sclerosis) and deal with it as a unique event so I don’t get overwhelmed. Next, I’m going to delegate and ask for help so I can get the things done that I want to do. Then, I’ll focus on the short term—what can I do today? What can I do for this morning, this afternoon, this hour? 3 years ago
