A little update on my MS

I have been struggling recently but still managing to do things and my optic neuritus has flared up with avengence (my right eye). I can cope with loss of vision but the pain around and behind the eye stops you in your tracks.
So I made an appointment with my Doctor. I saw him Thursday morning. I get on well with my doctor.
I have now been prescribed a 5 days course of oral steroids which should ease the imflamtion behind the eye. I do tend to respond well to this treatment. It should also help with the fatigue side of things.
Also my doctor is so pleased with my weight loss , he is so encouraging.

But I am still smiling and going to the Lord more often in prayer. We have such a comforter and loving God , a friend that never lets us down.

I'm sorry you are having so much trouble with your eye. I hope you feel better soon. I'm keeping you in my prayers.

Darn those flare ups! They just get in the way! Sorry about your eye. Praying that the steroids help, and praying they don't cause you a bunch of mood swings. And praying they help the fatigue and that, when you are finished with them, the eye and the fatigue remain better. Hang in there--you're right about the Lord--I'm glad I've found people through blogs that carry faith and have MS.

It is the only way to carry MS I think, I'm sure!!! To know that you have the ultimate physician watching over you is a blessing none can describe or better.

Hope the steroids provide you with some relief.
