Four months today since I was diagnosed

I just realized, after seeing my neurologist for a follow up this afternoon, that it’s been four months today since I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.

I’ve started physical therapy – mostly working on core muscles and endurance. Only a week and a half or so in, and I’m already feeling a difference. Took a few steps backward this weekend with a fibromyalgia flare, migraine, and possibly a MS flare. I have an MRI scheduled for next week to find out if I’m having an MS flare. If I am having an MS flare then I need to do steroid treatment. I hope I don’t have to do steroid treatment.

I’m trying to be positive about this and so far it’s working. I had eye pain over the weekend, after the migraine mostly resolved itself, and now I have blurry vision in my right eye. According to my neurologist eye pain plus blurry vision isn’t good. She did a visual exam of my eyes and then explained an MRI is needed.

I cannot believe it’s only been four months because so much has happened. Most of it has been health related, but still. I’m surprised – or amazed – or something.

Side note: Any new health insurance needs to be picked with the idea that I’ll be getting MRIs….
