mmmmmm steroids (gargles on self). Hey all i havent been on here for awhile. I almost didnt make it last september. I had severe pneumonia, 105 degree temps. Then while at the hospital my lung decided to spontanouely collaspe. The had to put some tube down my throat and another in my chest. SOOOOOO painful!!!!! Doctors were asking me if i had a will. Yea i got a will, a will to live, "now get out".
Since then i had one last attack a week after i got out. My feet and my legs up to my knees were totatly numb. I did the solumedrol drip for 3 days, since then i've been feeling amazing. All the numbess in my legs/feet are 100 percent gone. My feet were actualy numb for 5 months before that, which i figured was permanent. Only damage im left with is the VERY MINOR numbess on the bottom of my right hand (which seems to be slowly healing also).
Im still keeping up my hapiness, and i found a beautiful lady who accepts my MS! O yeah Pokey, thats about right every 3-4 months, 5 days may be excessive though (depends on the severity of the attack). I get a 2 or 3 day drip every 3 months or so. Im due next month, but i won't even ask unless im having an attack. Its such a fine line with this stuff. Too much is obviously really bad for your bones, liver etc. Too little obviously isn't good either. Id try for a 2 day drip next time. I find it weird, that they say steroids only help speed up the healing of an attack. Well how did it cure the numbess in my feet, that was there for 5 months?
Also how come you have to be hospitalized to get a solumedrol drip??? When i get it, i just have to go to the hospital for an hour till its done, then im free to go.
Happy holidays everyone!
