I know I have written posts about this in the past but right now it is something that is bothering me again. I am so sick and tired of Multiple Sclerosis right now because I am tired of feeling like crap. Everytime I go to the doctors they are switching up medications to try and make me feel better but nothing ever works. I am just tired of everything that has to do with Multiple Sclerosis and just not feeling well.
I know my situation could always be worse which is why I don’t talk much about how I am feeling but I have reached a point where I need to write about how I feel so that I can at least get it out and off of my chest. I also know that in the world of MS I have been relatively lucky as far as the disease progression goes but like I said before I am just sick of the disease.
I am sick and tired of being sick and tired. I know there really isn’t anything people can do about this at this point but I still wanted to write this because I don’t know that I have ever read a blog where someone with MS was totally honest about how much the disease sucks. I know this will pass and I will get back to the point where the things just roll off of my back but right now I just want to bitch about it. I also want to let others know that it is okay to be pissed off about what the disease does to us.
I am also tired of people thinking I am lazy because after I get off work the only thing I want to do is go home and go to bed. I wish there was someway for me to explain to others how tired I get going to work everyday. I wish I could find something to give me more energy but as it stands everything I have tried just makes things worse. I know if I could sleep I wouldn’t be as tired but like usual my health insurance company sucks and they won’t fill the one medication that does help me sleep and I can’t afford the medication without it being covered.
Anyway I am just bitchy and sick and this is what happens when I feel like this for months on end. How are things going for you guys right now????
I haven’t posted about Multiple Sclerosis for awhile because I really haven’t had anything new to write about but the past few weeks I have been experiencing what people call the Multiple Sclerosis Hug. The first time I heard about it was a few months ago and now that I have researched it I think it may be what some of back pain has actually been this whole time.
That being said those that know about the medication I am on might worry that it could be a serious side effect of the medication I am taking and I can assure you it isn’t that. I have felt these ways for years I just never put everything together. I should have figured it all had something to do with the MS but since they come and go I usually forget about it after they pass.
I couldn’t really find any statistics on how often it happens but one site did say up to 75% of will experience pain but they don’t have one for how many people experience the MS Hug. They say it cause by a lesion on the spinal cord that affects the muscles between your ribs.
I haven’t talked with my doctor about this yet but I will be talking to her at the end of the month after I have an MRI so I will see what she recommends when it comes to treatment and things like that. I did see there are a few medications you can take to try and help with it but I don’t think I will do anything for mine at this point because it does come and go. Now if it ever sticks around for awhile I will for sure figure out some treatment options.
Is there anything you would like to know more about? If so please leave a comment and I will write about it in the next few weeks!
