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?
