Just a little info I came across right here on MSAA regarding MS stages mymsaa.org/publications/abo...
To update you all on some stuff about me. At my April appt with my MS doc he said I may have gone from "not quite sure what stage of MS, to primary-progressive MS (PPMS), I do have active lesions on my spine T2 thru T5, but had never really been given a definite diagnosis in the 2 years since I first went numb.
Anyway, because of my age, doctors, health insurers etc are hesitant to prescribe DMT's for me. My doctor, husband and I discussed what he would prefer to prescribe for me, but first he and hubby preferred to have me have Neurophysiological testing to determine how I am doing with mental focus and related mental status. He is aware I am predisposed to develop Alzheimer's and some of the testing for it would be included. My Mother, her sister and just recently my brother all died from Alzheimer's.
I was stressing myself out about the testing for almost 2 months. Buying math, puzzle workbooks and internet brain testing. We live in such an age of everything being done for us.. I haven't used a calculator for years. RESULTS: He thinks I am doing very well. I maintained my focus fairly well throughout the testing. He said he doesn't see any outward Alzheimer's symptoms(Whew!😊) He says "I am holding up great!" in regards to dealing with MS. He recommends that I try to reduce to amount of Baclofen that I am taking to 4 - 10mg tablets a day and use some CBD creams or Magnesium creams made by "Ancient Minerals" available on Amazon. I have used the daytime cream, but especially love the Night time Cream. He also recommended more exercise so back to the gym for me. So overall, I am pleased and looking forward to my next appointment in October with my MS Doctor. This ol' lady just might get on a great DMT and get some of my life back!!🚴♀️🚴♀️🧡💜💕
