Thanks for the 2 replies.
I had a full workup including blood work, MRIs, spinal tap, etc. I don't think there is anything else they can do except start my meds. I have several lesions on the brain, but none on the spinal cord. I was informed that I am one of the 5%-10% without lesions on the cord. My neurologist (heads MS clinic in Mobile, AL) was hoping IV steroids followed by oral steroids would put me back into remission and nothing further would have to be done. It did take care of the imbalance, but now the imbalance has returned to some degree. I can still walk across a parking lot, but have trouble maneuvering around furniture. So far I have lost my balance and fallen 3 times in the last 2 weeks, not to mention my poor bookcase which became a casualty. I also have a fantastic primary physician, but since she is not a neurologist, cannot start my txs. I left a message for her asking if I can start some type of physical therapy which, to my understanding, helps in balance. It just seems that my balance and left leg and are becoming worse very fast. I left a message for my neurologist this morning since I again bounced off the dryer. Hopefully he can see me earlier, I am willing to even see one of his Residents (since they are educated by him, I think they will be able to give me some insight). It's nice to talk to someone who actually experiences what I'm going through. I'm glad I found this sight. What type of meds are ya'll on (yes, I am definitely from the South)? Right now I feel like a Swan trapped in an Albatrose body
and I'm eager to try to regain some of my daily life. I am a Respiratory Therapist, but unable to return to work due to disruptive cognitive thinking and imbalance. Fatigue is sometimes a major problem, also. Thanks again for your input.
