Starting some new meds

Yesterday was a rough day. I had a lot of increased weakness and proprioceptive issues with my left arm and hand.  I think this may be the beginnings of Tysabri withdrawl or Tysabri Rebound Effect.  Either way, it’s no fun to have MS symptoms returning and worsening.  Thankfully, today my arm feels better, pain-wise, and is moving a little better as well. Hopefully it will stay that way. I’ll be calling my neuro tomorrow to get set up for my next IV steroid.

I saw another doctor yesterday who wanted to help me with my depression/anxiety, as well as neuropathic pain.  So, I was given scripts for Cymbalta and Ambien.  The Ambien is hopefully just going to be a temporary thing to help me retrain my body to go to sleep at a more appropriate hour at night.  I need some good rest to try and give my body a fighting chance at trying to heal.
