Lulu... That is what my ms nurse said too... But to watch to make sure the symptoms do go away bc a uti can cause a true flare too.
Honestly I did not notice the uit for a few days bc of my ms issues come with bowel problems so I was already running and cramps from that... Tmi
Aspen too... This is the first uti I have on record too... I know I have had them before but they clear up on their own usually. I hope I won't have another now.
And the weird thing is, I get UTI's all the time now. Never used to, and no idea why. Glad you figured it out, and that you'll be feeling better soon.
Those are pseudo-exacerbations - a flare of our MS symptoms caused by infection or increase in our body temperature. The good news is those also go away once you clear up the infection.
Sorry but I had to chuckle quietly as I read your message because I have done the same thing - oblivious to the possibility until it finally dawns on me that I am in the bathroom for the twentieth time or so before noon. I can be so dense about the signs that it is a UTI but fortunately I haven't had one for some time now.
I hope you get better soon!
OH CANDACE THAT IS NOT FUN AT ALL! I HOPE YOU START FEELING BETTER SOON? I HAVE HAD 2 FEVERS IN THE LAST FEW MONTHS THAT GIVES ME THOSE MINI FLARE UPS IT JUST SEEMS TO ADD INSULT TO INJURY.
TAKE CARE AND LOTS OF HUGS,
