I have had fairly stable MS for 35 years. Somehow (without being hospitalized) I aquired a spot of MRSA on my shin about the size of a dime. It didn't change much at all in 5-6 weeks. I also have controlled diabetes and am overweight making this a harder than usual place to heal, I am told. At this same period I have had the first major exacerbation in many years, getting much weaker and having difficulty walking. I have been on bactrim double strength twice a day for three weeks and the sore is finally about half the size and looking much better. My strength is also returning each day it seems, and I have to wonder how much this has to do with the MRSA leaving my body. Has anyone else seen MRSA affect your MS?
