Hi Ya'all, my name is Mary.
I've been visiting here about a month or so now in hopes of finding answers, but have decided the best way to get an answer is to ask a question.
I hope you all can help me:
Just exactly what is a "relapse"?
I was diagnosed with RRMS in May of this year and have had trimmers (my whole body feels like it's shaking but it's not visible to anyone), headaches, numbness, can't find my words, and at times I can only see what's in the middle of what I'm looking at, the rest is "wavy".
I turned 57 February 24th and on the 26th my whole world fell apart. I was headed to one of my three jobs (I was doing all I could to keep my kids from having to take care of me) and one of my tires was low so I stopped to put air in it. Out of nowhere my head EXPLODED. That was the first of four trips to the ER and three to my PCP in six days. MRI's, Spinal Taps, so much blood work my arm was black...........Someone please tell me which of these, if either, is a relapse.
I'm new to this all. It's hard to talk to my family, their new to this too and don't understand. I now live with my oldest son and granddaughter, have no income at all and am just scared. Sorry for the rambling, lol.
