I did it - sort of!

Well, I did pull out my TotalGym machine yesterday and started with arm weights. That went OK - I can feel the muscles today!

But when I tried the leg exercises, which meant that I had to lie down, I got so woozy and dizzy and started feeling nauseous almost immediately. And the yucky feeling lasted almost all afternoon - boy, was I grumpy after that!!

I emailed him/her "Is it ok to take Avonex & LDN?"
They emailed me back, replying..
