Ok, I admit to a certain level of stubbornness. Last week, I had that nasty episode of spasticity which resolved (see my post "MS Needs to Check My Calendar First" on MultipleSclerosis.net). During the past 2 weeks or so, I've had on/off bladder issues. (grumble, grumble).
So this past Monday, I dug through my meds to locate the "emergency" supply of decadron I've had since 2011 and started up a steroid taper. Yesterday, no bladder issues. Today, no bladder issues. Whoohoo. This is nice.
Oh, wait. That means this really does count as a minor relapse, I suppose. (boo).
No surprise, really, as I've been pushing myself so hard for the past couple of months; it was bound to catch up with me. And right before I'm heading out of town/on the road 4 days out of 6 next week. Oh well, I guess I'll just have a nicely rounded steroid face when meeting several people for the first time. Maybe I can avoid the dark circles under the eyes this time though.
Here's fingers crossed that nothing bigger arises on the MS front until I am able to schedule my next round of Rituxan (hopefully in May, probably in June).
