Murphy’s Law

Murphy’s Law

I’m so glad this week is over. This week was tough. Everything that could go wrong went wrong, but dumb shit. Like knocking things over, my Apple Watch not working for a day, my Bionic Gym stopped working, the new coffee pot was delayed in delivery, and forgetting things I had planned. It was just one thing after another everyday this week. I’m exhausted. I have had a migraine for 3 days now and although today is much quieter than…

My multiple sclerosis spasms

My multiple sclerosis spasms

My spasms have been extremely annoying lately. I have a few different types and it depends what it hitting when. My back has probably been the most frequent. It starts with this warm feeling that spreads across my back and reaches from left to right. It continues to my right hand where it paralyzed it for a second. Then I have the one in right hamstring. This one you can feel building up. It’s like you welcome the spasm when…

I’m too tired for Monday

I’m too tired for Monday

I’m not sleeping well which is unusual for me. Sleeping has never been my problem. I can sleep all day and night normally other than getting up for bathroom breaks. Once in a while I deal with spasticity issues that plague my sleep. That can last for a night to a week to a month but that is sporadic and the medications I take at night normally do a good job preventing those episodes. I take baclofen, neurontin and flexeril…

Things that go twitch in the night

Things that go twitch in the night

I woke this morning with my twitches. It started up by my pelvic/hip area on the left side getting this feeling of an electric pulse. That pulse then traveled down my leg causing instant paralysis and flexing all the way to my toe. Then it stopped and released until the next pulse hit. They came every 10 minutes until I finally got up because sleeping wasn’t happening anymore. I take all my medicine at night so I can stop any…

The Obesity Code

The Obesity Code

After my upsetting week last week following weight watchers I choose to see my weight differently. I asked the universe for help. I immediately got to my life coach but then I got an email from my cousin. It was actually her second email regarding a book called . My cousin’s first email was explaining about the book before she knew I was struggling. The second email was following my blog post where she was more insistent that I read…

Back Spasms

Back Spasms

One of the most common of MS symptoms are spasms. They can range from mild to severely painful. I know many people with both extremes. I am considered mild. I have them in my legs mostly but also in my back. It’s my back spasms that can have the highest degree of range. On a good day I may have a few spasms in the whole day. A bad day I’ll have a few spasms every hour. Even the spasms…

Ocrevus this is my main drug for relapsing remitting MS. I take it through an IV once…

Multiple Sclerosis Spasticity

Multiple Sclerosis Spasticity

What’s your worst and MS symptom, besides fatigue ?  At first I would’ve always answered the numbness, but eventually you get used to it. Not used to it in the sense that it feels normal, use to it in the sense that this is how it is. My hands and fingers are so numb all the time. I’ve lost all tactile feeling and sometimes can’t tell the difference  between an item that is wet or dry, cotton or silk and…

Up all night and it wasn’t a party

Up all night and it wasn’t a party

ALL NIGHT!!! I may have slept for twenty minutes at the most. I know at some point my dogs started playing with each other like it was the afternoon. One of them was sick, I was cleaning up my floor at wee hours of the morning. I was crying because when I’m that tired and can’t sleep I get very frustrated and cranky.  I can’t take not sleeping. It’s just the worst thing that could happen t me. It’s this…

My current list of medications for my MS

My current list of medications for my MS

With any chronic Illness, I think our medicine cabinet becomes a small pharmacy. I thought I’d give a list of what I am taking for my multiple sclerosis, the dosage and the reason. I’ve included links to my other posts if I have information that I thought was useful on a particular drug or vitamin. This post is an added plus for me. I can print and give to doctors instead of rewriting each drug I take on their medical…
