please help me. I read a post of yours where u said u were given 10 grams of solumedrol for your MS. Same here, and I have been hospitalized twice since taking that much. Something is seriously wrong- I'm shaky, have high blood pressure, my chest hurts, my potassium was low, depression, severe pain, etc. My email is ***@**** I believe I have steroid poisoning and wanted to know more about your experience. Thank you so much. -Tiffany

Sorry for the delayed response to your question. You asked if I have any cognitive issues due to my brainstem lesion. I don't have any major problems, but have noticed the occasional problems finding the right word I mean to say, or saying one word when I mean another (yesterday I said "mushroom" when I meant to say "moustache," that type of thing).  I also can find it hard to concentrate sometimes; I haven't been able to read a novel from start to finish in ages, I can find myself re-reading the same section over and over but distraction takes over.  I don't know if these things are primary symtoms of my MS, ie: directly caused by lesions, or secondary, due to the whole psychological matter of dealing with a chronic illness.  I plan to raise it w/ my neuro next week, to get his take.

Thanks for your note!  Actually I wrote that journal entry last May 17; this year will be my 12th anniversary. But thanks for the gesture, and I anticipate feeling much better on my 12th anniversary than I did on my 11th!

Thank you for your wonderful note!!
From what I read, those brain stem lesions are a bit scary.  I had been experiencing facial pain (extreme) and thought it was either sinus or tooth related.  I now know that it is from the lesion.

I hope your's resolves soon.  

Thank you for thinking of me!

If you were talking about the pics on my profile page, yes, I did take them.  My favorite is the magnificant butterfly, sipping the nectar off a flower.  The photo is completely un-retouched, showing God's beauty; undisturbed by man's hands.  Thanks for asking.  Have a great week, Heather

Just wanted to let you know I can relate. If you ever want to talk, you know where to find me. Hi! My name is Ang and I noticed you have MS and thought I could add you as a friend.  I also see you live in SC. My family and I lived in SC before moving to GA.  We lived in Gaston, West Columbia and have friends in Lexingtion too. I miss DC so much.  Loved it there. Hope you have a great day.

Christy,
  I am feeling ok but I think it's too soon to know about the Aricept. I will keep you posted though. It's been very cold here too. We were down in the minus 5 range without windchill, brrrr!!
  I hope that you are doing well. Keep me posted with what's going on with you.
Hugs,
Erin :)

Thank you for the kitty compliments.  She is a siamese/calico blend, 10 years old.  I spoil her mercilessly.  I see you have a nice menagerie, too!

Oops! I just went to respond to your note and hit "report this" instead so if you get a nasty gram from MedHelp it is al lmy fault! :-)

I got your note - self-cathing is relatively easy and makes all the difference in the world.  It sure beats having an indwelling catheter put in (semi-permanent) and wearing a collection bag.  The implant may be something I do down the road but for now I want to see those MRI's and get a feel for what is happening in my brain!

Have a good night, Lulu

Hi Christy,
Thanks for introducing yourself to me.  You want to hear something funny?  We bought this house 3 or 4 years ago and I requested a garden tub.  Wow, how nice a hot bubbly bath in it would be?  Well, I took 2 baths in it.  Now it is officially a "garden" tub.  I bring my plants in the winter there and start my seeds in it, LOL!
Feel free to write me anytime!

I have got to run and seperate the bos before they hurt one another.

You're in my thoughts all the time, but especially today.

Christy,
   I am sorry that you are scared but you are not alone. There are so many people here to share your pain with and you can almost always find someone that is either going through the same thing or has been there.

  I am glad to be one of your friends and don't ever hesitate to reach out even if you just need to vent. We all need that sometimes. Take care - talk to you soon

  Hugs,
  Erin :)

Just a quick note to say hi! Yes, it is really beautiful. One of the nice things about Oregon is it has a lot of variation in climates, depending on where you live. I live in eastern Oregon, in semi-arid desert. I like the heat, so it's good for me. Wet and cold don't agree with all my ailments, so this winter is a challange. Thank you for your note.

Just a quick note to say hi! I too had a pug.  We got her when she was 6 weeks old.  Her name was Pudgie.  I bet you can guess why.  She had seizures and took meds the last five years of her life.  One day she had a seizure and it must have caused a stroke and we lost her.  That was about 3 years ago and I still miss her.

Yes, That is Teddy, my demented, somewhat psychotic (but, very sweet) little Burmese.  She taught herself to do it.  she would even "pose" on the toilet just to get praise.  I lost her a couple years ago.  quix

You deserve a big bear hug! We all get pretty frustrated with both doctors and co-workers from time to time.  I hope you feel free to post about it so you can get some support!  That's what I love about this forum!

Feel better!
