I have a dx of RR MS since June 21st this year. 9 months after my first baby was born.
I have had two mris spine, Cspine & Brain. Brain showed a few lesions. I was then given my diagnosis based on my scan and symptoms . For me it began with Optic Neuritis , trembling hand & balance issues.
I received two doses of Iv 3 day steroids in June & again in August. I’ve not been on any meds , there is talk about it now but I want to get a second opinon before I begin anything… I’m not saying my docs are wrong , but a second opinion is always a good thing i think. Did you get two or more opinions ?
Everything is still all raw for me. I still feel confused, I’m still grieving the old me , every minute of the day I think about the future ahead of me and it scares me. It’s the uncertainty. I was an anxious person before , but now it has sent me over the edge. I’ve turned into a total hypochondriac.
Symptoms I deal with on a daily are…Imbalance, memory fog (Getting slightly better) , eyes feel heavy at cloudy at times, waking up tired , zapping headaches that come as fast as it goes & in the past week I have tingling in one my legs. Does anybody else deal with all these things on a daily basis? It seems like a lot??
What was the first medication you first tried and how did it go? I’m so scared with all my symptoms its progressed… maybe this is just the disease tho? and it’s not a relapse…?
My husband and I want another child soon too & my docs have said don’t let my MS hold me back! but I am trying to be realistic and think about that relapse afterbirth & I worry it will be the one that gives me a dibilating relapse that I can’t come back from to stay as healty as I can right now, I am taking daily supplements & eating clean.
Apologies for the essay of a post . I clearly have a lot in my mind right now! Please send me a reply and let me know your experience. Thanks - M
