Okay here I go. I was diagnosed with progressive MS in 2012. At first I was in denial. Let me make this short as possible. The past couple months I have had pneumonia which flared up an exacerbation that made my already swollen feet even bigger and blew out my ankles and moving up my legs now. The doctor has me on steroids again and again and again and again and again for 2 months. I have gained sooo much weight recently and starting to wheeze if I walk anywhere. Ohhh yeah and I can't hardly walk anymore or drive at all. The neurologist is only in every other week and my appointment is January 8th. My feet are looking deformed and it's wearing me down. I have been sleeping all day and night for a few days. Should I go to the hospital?? Ohhh and my primary doctor just keeps giving me diuretics. I'm now taking 4 a day. Not helping me. Does anyone know about pumps for swelling in my feet and ankles and legs??
One other question!! Does anyone know about assisted living facilities?? My counselor said I need to move out of Florida to get better health care. I can't burden my family. Does Medicare and Medicaid insurance cover assisted living facility??
Thank you for helping me sooo much!!!
