cheerleader - Thanks and your right I am stressin'! There is just SO much to take in. I did have the MRI w/contrast and have many lesions.
I just did the needed blood work last week so haven't heard about the results yet. The LP is just being checked for approval w/ my insurance and they are suppose to get me in within the next couple weeks.
I agree I am putting the cart before the horse, I tend to go that direction.
Its just that after reading so much about MS and vasculitis I was really scared cause there is no cure and they are downright unpredictable! Which annoys me cause I like to plan lol (hate surprises!)
Anyway the procedure for CCSVI just made me cry cause I was thinking WOW there could be a surgery to alleviate this problem, but I will s.l.o.w. it down lol and take a breath and just see what happens with my LP.
CureIous- your statement "omg I got SOMETHING, whatever it is, NOW what do I DO?" describes me to a t lol and just trying to go a day without worrying is SO hard! Every little weird thing my body does well my mind races on what the heck is happening NOW! My doc did say he wants to get me started on the meds asap so that will be a whole other worry for me to deal as I get very nervous when starting/taking medications. But I guess I'll have to get over like everyone else. I am glad you are doing well w/o the medications
I have also started the BBD and my very lucky dog is now getting a long walk every night. I get kind of scared exercising at all thinking I need to save energy but I guess I am just a bunch a nerves right now and once the "newness" wears off I will settle down a bit.
Oh and we are pretty close I am in Anaheim - Looks like we are in for some more dreaded heat this week..ugh can't wait for the cool weather to stick! tc neighbor
Thank you guys for the replies and the wonderful welcome ((hugs))
