It's official
Well, it turns out that I am in fact having an attack. Booooo. I went in to the MS clinic and had a physical and neuro exam, urine test and all the other cursory ones... blood pressure, temperature ect. So my numbness has moved to incorporate my torso, legs and one arm and it does get classified as an attack. I had to re-sign the clinical trial paperwork and talk to my doctor about whether I should stay on the trial or not. We also talked about steriods and decided not to do any. Thank god! the one doctor also said that he feels very strongly about Fingolimod. He thinks it will go to market one day. Kinda cool to hear that. The thing they did find was a bit of a fever and high white blood cell count in my urine... bladder infection? Who knows. So they sent off to get a culture done and I'm waiting for the results of that. The weird thing about all of this is that I have no symptoms that would tell me that I have anything wrong with me other than the numbness. Weird. Were it not for this trial, I would never have gone in to be looked at let alone know that I had other stuff going on! What a weird process this is for me. Maybe I'm just really good at ignoring what my body does from time to time.
