Almost Done with Steroids, Luckily

Solu-medrol has not affected me like this in years. I feel terrible. Especially because of the sleep issues. Night one I fell asleep at 8:00pm but woke up wide awake at 2:00am and just lied there till about 6 or so. I should note that I was mentally fatigued but physically awake which is the opposite of what I usually am. The next night I took a little more to help me fall and STAY asleep; clocked in about 14 hours of sleep! Oh, reminds me of high school haha.

Yesterday the nurse had some issues with getting my line in and keeping it in without blood and Solu-Medrol getting everywhere. I won’t really get into detail because let’s just say I was not a happy camper and am still just trying to bite my tongue about it and keep my cool. I remember Solu-medrol making me very aggravated when I first had it, roid rage! Then I got used to it and never really had a problem anymore, but yesterday? IDK, I just could barely stay chill. Everything was ticking me off, everything! That wasn’t made better by the fact that my body has been feeling dead but my mind was just racing! So that’s when I am in “leave me alone” mode.

Today I will have a different nurse so hopefully, things go more smoothly. At least I don’t feel so sleep deprived. I am still super fatigued but I am a little more functional. I just want to be done with this. I swear, Lemtrada changed something in me as far as how my body reacts to things. Even the same ol’ plastic tape they have used on me for 7 years is making my skin react! Tape! Can I be done with this relapse and get back to trying to stay ahead of my MS instead of just playing catch-up?

I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in 2010 at the age of 20. It's been a battle ever since and I have always shared my story and struggles online!

    This is my first time ever commenting here or any other blog. I don’t even write reviews on products that I buy on amazon. All because I write 10 times slower than most people. Reading, I like and I read a lot about health products. I keep hundreds of open tabs, that’s my preferred method than bookmarking.

    My eyes have many serious issues. One day my research lead to your web page where you talked about your eye problems. That was many month ago. I kept that tab open so I could later share some health tips with you but procrastination force is too strong to resist so I never did till now. I feel good today and decided to sell my iMac on ebay. Opened Firefox and the tab with your website was on top. So now I’m here typing my boring story.

    QUERCETIN is a powerful pain killer for my eye pain. For many years I had pain in my left eye after prolong computer use. When the pain became constant and severe I stated buying more supplement. I was taking a handful of supplements. The pain was gone but I didn’t know what was helping. After many trials I learned it was quercetin. It also greatly reduced star like flashes.

    5-LOXIN is supper anti-inflammatory.

    Have you experimented with Lion’s Mane mushroom?

      Hi, thank you for writing. I have no experience with that, I really don’t get eye pain; maybe a couple times but it never lasts.
