In late Janurary I had a Really Bad Exacerbation, the worst I ever had...this one has left me noticableably slower,, both physically and cognitivaly..

The RBE, see above, started when I had been inside for a week hiding from the cold. The RBE is pretty much over after I started taking vitamin D3 but my gait is peremently altered with severe drop foot on my right side along with some other issues

My neuro sent me for a MRI, won't know the results for a while..but..being in the tube isn't that bad as along as you are not claustrophobic , but, the magnetic bombardment makes me wonder..ever feel"odd" after being in the tube?
It seemed like a good idea at the time

Hey Dennis,

I am very sorry to hear of your RBE. That total stinks. I have never felt weird after being in the tube. Do you take anything for your symptoms? I seem to remember you are treating this with supplements and lifestyle changes. I hope you are feeling better real soon. Hang in there. There are some wonderful products out there for foot drop. Google bioness. They have a great product that can be used with physiotherapy to get you walking better.

I have been taking various supplements, so far the one that has brought the biggest change has been the vitamin D3..

I know there are devices that fit on your foot to help ease the footdrop, if it gets worse, I'll get it.

I also have IBS with constipation which also got worse, but! now I take a stool softener and a senna stimulent laxitive the night b4, and the BM is now easy the next day..

But, the MRI, I still feel really weird after its done.....you are being bombarded with electromagnetic energy...and the next day if I put a lightbulb next to my teeth, it lights up...just kidding
