Never done a chat room...up late, depressed and stressed out and don't want o further bug my husband. Parents are actually being involved and supportive, but kinda freaking out with my emotions right now and just want me to pop and anitdepressant right now. I am thinking Lexapro might be a good starter for this week. 3 weeks ago legs got numb over night along with crotch and weekness in thighs, knees hios etc. and after a couple weeks of tests and tests....Dx is MS...although specialist doesn't want to label it that yet until another lesion forms and I have another flare up. It has been 3 weeks of being crippled and very uncomfortable in my legs non stop. Just did 5 days of IV solumedrol and now weaning off steroids with pred this week...and then what???...In a few weeks I go back to the specialist who i guess will give me some injectables....to treat MS?
I am scared and confused....30 years old with a 3 yr old active boy that I just want to play with and go back to being my old self last month. I thought times were tough with my marriage and hubby struggling with his career/finances and then this happens?! I used to say...at least I have my health....but that just failed me last month as I was trying to hobble around throwing my baby's first big #3 b-day party. I pulled it off and it was good, but this all wasn't the pinched nerve we though it was.
Any thoughts...anyone out there right now?
I started a new thread for you so more will see your post I'm sorry that have MS, but this is a great forum and I hope you will find some understanding of what are you going through. Hopefully the solumedrol treatment will help with your current symptoms and you start to feel better. There are currently four injection treatments right now to help slow progression and if you have any questions about those, please ask.
I'm sure others will be along shortly. Getting diagnosed can be a scary experience but we will be here for you anytime you need to vent or have questions.
