Really good multiple sclerosis research news

Really good multiple sclerosis research news

This is the best news article I’ve come along in a long time. It was titled: ‘Holy Grail’ MS discovery could prevent disability using diabetes drug For the first time in ages this talks about stopping the disability not reducing relapses. https://www.sciencefocus.com/news/holy-grail-ms-discovery-could-prevent-disability-using-diabetes-drug/ In MS, the protective coating surrounding nerves known as myelin is damaged causing them to become less energy efficient which makes them vulnerable to further damage and causes disability over time, the MS Society said. < p style=”box-sizing: inherit; margin:…

Fatigue, workouts, the MS gym and stuff

Fatigue, workouts, the MS gym and stuff

Good morning to all. I just sat down from my morning exercise. My body certainly feels it but my heart rate didn’t reflex the same results. I have not taken one day off since I started the MS gym program. I just changed my workouts and incorporated the gym too. The last time I didn’t close my exercise circle (the green circle) was back on June 25th. When I complete this week, I will have completed the program I signed…

I just completed week 2 and I already have seen a slight improvement. no one else would notice this improvement, it is extremely minute. This is just one of the things that I noticed from doing…

Gradual disease progression

I have written many blogs about lack of sleep Sleep deprived, many about accidents A horrible and humbling outing, and even some on actual feeling How are you feeling? The truth about Parethesia, but it’s been a while since I actually said how I was feeling. I’ve had multiple sclerosis for 22 years now. My disease modifying therapy is…

The strange MS symptoms back again

The strange MS symptoms back again

I haven’t talked about my MS in so long. It hasn’t been too bad, thankfully. I did end up on the floor after I worked out in the evening. Totally Rocked This I had this great work out but it did make me extremely tired and my recovery wasn’t quite on point. So transferring into my wheelchair didn’t go so well. I didn’t panic, or cry. It took me a little bit but I eventually got myself up and I…

Bladder issues

Bladder issues

I’m not sure what exactly is going on with my bladder these days. I know I have issues, had them for years, but they’ve seemed somewhat worse over the last few weeks. I am not sure if I don’t have some kind of bladder infection. The problem is that is varies day to day, something bladder infection tend not to do. However between my water pills and Toviaz, who knows. Urinary tract infections don’t always cause signs and symptoms, but…

My muscles are getting weaker

My muscles are getting weaker

I have to be honest, my legs are super tired by the end of the night. I’ve been having some real issues getting myself into bed. Luckily my daughter has been around to assist and readjust my legs. My original thoughts were why? I’m resting most of the day after I exercise. Then it occurred to me, I’m moving even less now than the little I was moving before. This is bad. The more I’m in hibernation, the weaker I’m…

A week after Rituxan

A week after Rituxan

I went through my blog posts because I couldn’t remember how many times I’ve done Rituxan. I made the switch from Ocrevus back to Rituxan for the March 2019 infusion. This is my 3rd time. I was on Rituxan at an earlier time but was forced to change when Ocrevus came out. My insurance company, at the time, would not authorize Rituxan because it was not approved for multiple sclerosis. I than changed insurance companies once again and asked to…

A blister formed after Rituxan infusion again

A blister formed after Rituxan infusion again

On Wednesday I was feeling something itching me under me right breast. I looked many times but didn’t see anything. I was on high alert looking for blister under my breasts. I was very concerned over a repeat episode of the side effects that happened last September. https://multipleexperiences.org/2019/09/17/blisters-on-breast/?preview=true&frame-nonce=b3345af611. When my aid looked on Thursday she was able to see a few little bumps in the area like a rash. We used a little Neosporin on the area. Last night I…
