    Manumit updated his bio

    I'm a 38 year old male.I'm married with a teenage boy.I'm on disability.I volunteer one day a week at the local library.I finally feel(after 4 years) that I'm getting a handle on my version of this rodeo.Now that is not to say I don't get bucked off from time to time but I'm still gettin back on.

    I was dx in 2007 but I believe I had it for a year or two before.My continuing symptoms that won't go away but only vary from day to day are,weakness,uncordination and numbness on the right side of my body.Fatigue and a diffuse full body pain(ache)of varying degree is my daily companion.I get foot drop on rt side that worstens with walking.Heat wipes me out.Car rides(vibrations) of longer than a half hour or so kick my l'hermetts into high gear.I also deal with depressive episodes,usually when my meds are off or when switching.Cognitive fogginess is less now since I stopped Rebif but I get the poor memory/searching for words thing quite often.

    I'm not impressed with Drs anymore as everything I take or do to try to improve my lot in life I had to figure out myself.

    This site and others like it have helped immeasurably tho.They make me feel not so alone in this and made me realize I'm not as crazy as I thought I was,at least no crazier Than I was before my Dx.

    Manumit was feeling neutral

    Just getting over a bad patch.For me switching from Cymbalta to Savella was a bad idea.I had a major depressive episode on the 9th and on the 10th someone ran me over with a steamroller on the inside of my body.On monday I'll call Neuro toswitch back.

    Stopped Modafinil

    • Stopped:
    • Reasons: Did not seem to work

    It worked for a while but after a month or so not so much but I took it anyway due to inexperience at dealing with my M.s. and an overconfidence in my neurologist.

    Stopped Interferon beta-1a SubQ injection

    • Stopped:
    • Reasons: Side effects too severe

    Rebif for me caused way more problems than it was worth.Plus I felt bad for all the Chinese hampsters.As if our disease wasn't riduculous enough one of the main ingredents is Chinese Hampster ovaries.Yet another example of truth being stranger than fiction.
