Oscillopsia - Starting to Walk Without a Cane?

Photobucket  
OK. let's slow down a bit. About 2 weeks ago, before I relapsed, I was comfortably walking inside and outside without a cane for maybe 2 days. Then I relapsed and was in a wheelchair and hardly able to stand... Since then I have been religious about working out, stretching, taking all my medication/supplements, eating good meals, and getting good sleep as well as doing all that I can to avoid stress. It is working great! I am just about where I was before my relapse! Hope I don't speak too soon!


((knock on wood))


Really quick, before I forget, I was going through some paperwork from my last neurology visit and I found the name of that eye thing I had! “Oscillopsia”, time to add it to the list! That seems to be just about gone, well, it is, just some optic neuritis left I think.


So the walking. Yes, maybe not doing uneven surfaces yet and I need to rebuild some strength as well as coordination but I am almost there, yay! My balance is getting a tad better but that is slow. Doing the fun ol' vestibular exercises right now to try to speed that up a bit...


Oh yeah, I didn't think this was MS related but now that I am looking around I think it is: neck pain. It feels like I pulled a muscle and hurts pretty bad when I yawn... Wonder if this is some form of spasticity or something totally unrelated? I am going to try to take Ibuprofen and see if that helps, I am so sick of Norco and Percocet, they do nothing now...


Random: I am trying to find some sort of widget that I can put on my blog that will show my current symptoms. If you know of one please let me know! If you can make one email me and we will work on this! mattalleng@yahoo.com


Later!
