Karen MS story
I was diagnosed in 2008 at the age of 59.
I had been told that I had peripheral neuropathy for a few years, and finally a neurologist changed the diagnoses to MS. I had no new lesions, only old ones. To my knowledge, I never had an exacerbation.
I had a mysterious itching in my feet. It was terrible, nothing could relieve the itch. Went on for a long time.
I was given a 5 day infusion of solumedrol. It was terrible. My blood pressure shot sky high, as did my sugar. My bladder became overactive. I felt terrible. Still no new lesions.
On Copaxone, which I wish I could get off. Pseudo-symptoms... what's up with them? Not real, but the pain is real.
Sometimes I think that I am losing my mind.
Do you have a fear of needles and take medication that requires injection?
