I was diagnosed in 2010, officially, tho I'm told I have had MS since I was 17...40 yrs.
My question is, I still don't understand when I am having a flare. Recently I had several new symptoms and problems, and finally my roommate said "dont you think you're having a flare? You better call your doc". I didnt even recognize it, but he did. The doc prescribed a steroid pac that day. 5 days later, steroids were gone, and I felt better. But not all of the symptoms were gone. The severe mood swing and depression is lingering, as is the low grade fever and a few other things.
Has anyone else experienced mood swings? I'm usually a super happy person. Now everything makes me angry. I have no patience and I know I'm making it tough on my roommate who is my caretaker.
Is this a common flare issue?
Thanks for ideas and opinions!
