my “ms” might not even be ms at all. after doing some research one day I came across an article that mentioned a chemical i’ve been exposed to over the years at work. this chemical in which i will leave nameless temporarily has neurotoxic effects, just like ms. funny thing is I’ve mentioned working with chemicals to my neuro before and he never thought to test me for toxicity.. complete bullshit scam if you ask me but only time will tell. ill keep anyone who even reads this blog updated
Took me a bit to figure out what injection I was even on, hopefully it is accurate. This mornings injection went well. It was the top of my left thigh, which usually always goes pretty good. On occasion I’ll hit the wrong spot and feel pain but thats only on occasion.
One important observation I made that I should probably point out is my recent frequent urge to urinate. At first I thought this was just a side effect of having ms, but then later realized it is actually a known side effect for copaxone. In my situation, frequently urinating is probably the only noticeable symptom I have at the moment and at times it can get extremely frustrating. I’ve managed to put up with it for this long without any further relapses, so I won’t be making any drastic changes yet.

Went to the gun range the other day for the first time. A few months back I bought a groupon for my little brothers birthday, which was a 30 minute safety class and a shooting lesson. Long story short, it was awesome

Had my follow up neuro appointment this morning to go over my recent MRI and bloodwork. Good news, everything looks great. My MRI shows no new spots and blood work all checked out. My neuro did however mention that since my case is so different than many others with MS, we shouldn’t rule out the fact that what I have could be something else. My case being different in the sense my brain MRI shows no new spots, but there is still a visible elongated lesion along my spine. It was discussed that this could have been a virus that did work on my body and is now gone, or it could still be a number of different autoimmune diseases. Lupus was one that he had mentioned. To be honest, all signs still point towards MS, I’m just dealing with it by completely changing my lifestyle.
For now I will continue taking copaxone, continue on my gluten dairy free diet and continue working out at least 3 times a week.
This is research.
