Two weeks ago I started dropping things. Last week I noticed a stiffness in my right hand. I have trouble picking up pens and silverware and the like (of course I'm right handed )
Iwas really sold on the hand problem being tendinitis. I saw my neurologist today and she said its ms (it matches up with a plaque on my spinal column). So...is the hand thing part of the last flare up that I somehow didn't notice until now? I did a home IV, I feel certain i would have noticed while i was hooking that up. Can you have rrms and get new symptoms between flares? I know that the brain sometimes remyelinates, can the spinal cord too? Will this go away?
The neuro offered occupational therapy. Is occupational therapy worth the huge PITA that it would be for me to find child care and go? I don't really get how some finger exercises are going to keep me from dropping stuff. I had to take one of the kids to physical therapy when he was a baby and I swear it did nothing.
