So at this point there is no doubt that I am further relapsing… At first it was still questionable as to wether or not I was just dealing with some day to day flare ups but nope, definitely an actual relapse which is funny because I never got rid of my other symptoms from my “second exacerbation” so I never really went into “remission” to begin with but like I have said before, I don’t think that is such a good word to use for my MS, for me there are good days and there are better days along with the bad days.
Anyways, my left hand is losing strength, coordination, and fine motor capabilities again. I’m still able to type but it isn’t as easy nor is playing the piano. I am noticing that I am loosing my grip when holding something such as a glass of water. More noticeably is my walking and balance that is being effected. The strength and coordination in my left leg is once again fading causing my gate to be out of whack again but not as bad as it’s been in the past, just walking a little funny is all. Also loosing my balance a lot more but haven’t fallen yet, just bumping into walls and what not. I have also noticed an increase in sensitivity to cold objects against my skin on the right side of my body but other then that no new symptoms seem to be popping up.
Still dealing with the tingling in my left hand, the Lhermitte’s Sign, and the cognitive issues that have been present for so long now.
I took it upon myself to increase my Prednisone to 70mg the other day and last night my doctor FINALLY replied to my emails and said I should increase to about 60mg so I was close on my guess but I’m staying on 70mg as I would like to be a tad more aggressive. She also agreed that the next best course of action would be more Solu-Medrol (IV Steroids) so hopefully I can get that set up for this coming up week and get some of my balance and fine motor control back. We shall see!
