As a bit of background my feet remain numb and my legs a little weak. Well in a telephone conversation tonight if my neuro knew about my continued problems. After making some joke about barring him being psychic then no. I said there is no point calling him because I’m not going to take anything (read Solu-Medrol) for this. I emphasized that the side effects are way too bad (and my thinking is that exacerbations are part of MS – save the Solu-Medrol for when you really need it!) I explained my horrific attitude that there is no making me happy and I treat everyone badly. The point of all of this was the next comment which was something to the effect of “doesn’t knowing that it is the Solu-Medrol help you to get over the feeling.” Truly a statement made by someone who has absolutely no clue, and that is good because I wish I didn’t know. I tried to explain it in terms of waking up in the worst possible mood x1000, but alas that doesn’t cover it. The things that MS opens your eyes about.

  1. Erik, I know that there are a lot of MSer’s out there who have done, or are doing Solumedrol, but I find the bad mood times 1000 thing very scary! I hope that I can steer clear of that one too. Thanks,

  2. Do whatever YOU are comfortable with and don’t let anyone, including a doctor, force you into anything you don’t want.

    You know your body better than anyone else!
