Heading into almost 5 months now since my diagnosis. Have read almost everything I can get my hands on, and have chatted with numerous MS pt. Was in flare up when dx'd, had tx w/IV Solumedrol, put on Avonex. Have had two flare ups already, one put me back on IV solumedrol, the other, was less intensive, but still experienced some symptoms. Had 2nd MRI, no new lesions noted, but Neuro stated that a few there were very bright and therefore quite active. Daily I have the weakness, tingling and cramping on my left side, mostly leg, foot and toes. Have significant weakness in l arm-difficult to find strength to hold arm up to wash and dry hair. Heat really effects me, causes all my joints to ache and swell something terrible. On Baclofen and Hydrocodone for this, which do help some. The Big Question? Is this what I should continually expect? I know that everyone is different, but I guess I want the answer to the BIG Question. Anyone suffer similarly and got an answer for me, at least might have some feedback with their similar experience? Thanks!
