This past Tuesday (6/8/2004) my hands got very stiff late in the day. Since this was before I made it home and suspected I was running a fever I was thinking great a repeat of my hand exacerbation is beginning again and right after a solu-medrol treatment. I was very relieved to find out it was just caused by a fever getting my core temperature too high. Especially since Tuesday morning started off as an unusually good hand day – in fact I can’t remember how long it has been since my hands have felt that good!
Well this has been my first fever since being diagnosed with MS. Certainly much worse than the Texas heat since there is no escaping it and I was certainly warmer! 🙁 Though kinda hard to escape getting sick while on high-dose steroids.
