Sooo I have had great days! I am resting during the week and having close to normal life on weekends, I am running around and trying to participate more on family activities.
This vitamin powder is really doing the trick. Unfortunately now that I am seeing progress I have to stop the imunovir for one month. I am trying to decide what to do to maintain my current state.
I had a lumbar puncture yesterday to rule out MS. Was not so bad after all the horror stories I read about. I am in bed resting making sure I do not get the headache, So I decided to sacrifice two days and rest completely so I recover fast and without incident from it.
The procedure: I got to hospital and they drew A LOT of blood. Then they took me to a RX machine and the Doctor put anesthesia on spine. As he started inserting the needle, I cried like a baby because I wasn't numb enough. So he stopped, put more anesthesia, then I didn't feel a thing. Layed flat for one hour in Hospital then they sent me home, and I have been in bed since. I have a minor discomfort in back but nothing major. So far so good!!!
