I don't run as fast or often as I used to, but I do try. I am learning to adapt to new subtle and not so subtle "twinges" and burnings, quadricep heaviness, occasional knee dropping, and exhaustion.
Question-When do you know you are having a "real" attack versus just a few days of extra leg heaviness, muscle stiffness, etc? My neuro said a "real" attack would be BIG. All these little things mess with my head Smile Any thoughts?
Everyone is different. Some people have attacks that wipe them out so that they cant even walk. I on the other hand have relatively mild relapses as I hit them with oral prednisone before they degrade ne too far. I think your neuro was speaking a little off the cuff, and the way it is for yourself will require your own personal monitoring. For example, I only have a cold/flu as a trigger for a relapse, so I usually know beforehand and can be a little more pro-active in avoiding and treating a relapse. But that has taken 10 years to understand and gain control of.Sky wrote:My neuro said a "real" attack would be BIG.
