Hello my name is Eveliz. I am 40 yrs young, married with 2 adult sons. I was dx. 4 wks ago with RRMS and was dx after complaining to my PCP of heavy feeling/discomfort in my left arm, leg & foot, migraines, muscle spasms & daily extreme fatigue. Since I struggle with managing my cholesterol appropriately my PCP ordered me to get an MRI of my brain, neck & spine to asure that I wasn’t having a stroke. Long story short I was referred to a numerologist for confirmation of dx. I received 5 day treatment of 1000mg of IV Solu Medrol & prescribed Copaxone 40mg.
Im currently still working full time; only took 3 wks off when dx & returned just this past wk. I’m still learning how to manage & use my energy appropriately which made this past week very difficult. My husband & sons are very supportive but I just don’t feel like they fully understand what I’m going through.
In the past wk, I’ve realized that meditating, taking as many 15-20 min breaks/naps as often as I can & sleeping 8-10 hrs a night has been somewhat a little helpful. I’ve always been the type of person that’s been on the move; working 2 jobs, taking care of everyone’s else, always busy. Now I’m lucky if I can get through my 7.5hr work day without falling apart. I just hope that as time goes on I’m able to learn how to to take better care of myself, recharge my energy & use it appropriately.
I’m new here so it’s nice that I can use my introduce myself & meet others who can understand what I’m going through.
Staying positive - Eveliz
