Not feeling my usual long-winded self. I hurt. Have had this pain before, but not so bad for a long time. years. Nerve pain I suppose. Severe pain in my spine, lower cervical and upper back between shoulder blades. And the balance issue has been chronic for 6 days instead of coming and going. So- I started a new chiropractor last month. Had an adjust ment Thursday that made me dizzy and queasy- Has anyone found chiropractic to cause a flare or worsening of symptoms. Unfortunately that night I re-started Avonex (6 mo.s off). But only .2 of a dose. No flu side effects- Has anyone found starting interferons to cause flare?
Maybe coincidence, but ow! makes me nauseous from pain. It wasn't three years ago I heard a professional say MS does not cause pain. ha. Thanks for opp to vent. Maybe time to ask about neurontin. Haven't tried it.

I am much too afraid of chiropractors. I have spinal lesions. If you cause any pressure or stress on those, it can cause a flare. No chiroprators for me. I can't answer your other questions. I don't have any experience with interferons. I have heard that stopping progression therapy can make things rebound and get worse. At six months, you are probably just at the point where the interferon is totally out of your system and that would certainly allow MS to have free reign to progress.
I would definitely talk to your doctor. You have some bad stuff going on. I hope you get some relief soon. I am glad to hear that you are back on progression therapy again. Good luck and I hope you are feeling well real soon.
