Hope today is a good one for you all.
Had a busy old day today, shattered now but happy. I seen the ms nurse a month ago and she said I am going to get you to see the neuro, and had my appointment today. The last one I seen was yonks ago, and he was very patronising and off hand, so I wasn’t looking forward to today.
Well what a surprise, this neuro today could not have been nicer, put me so at ease, just shows how different they can be, and all my bad memories have blown out the window.
He has said that statins are proving to be good for progressive ms, and as my cholesterol is too high, he has put me on them. Anyone heard about simvastin helping? He also wants to introduce gabapentin alongside the amitriptyline I already take, but wants me to add one thing at a time. He also said he is going to write to my Rheumy as he feels the Hydroxychloroquine isn’t working good enough with the swelling, suggesting she introduces Methotextrate as well Asap. Bit worried about so many extra tablets, but I did feel trust in him, so will give them a whirl and see.
After the hospital we went into Gloucester and managed to get some more Christmas presents for our grandchildren, so all in all, a good day, but got to rest now with a cuppa.
