Hey Everyone! So I’ve been in severe pain constantly the past few days and my doctor couldn’t see me for a couple weeks so went to the ER. They did an ultrasound and CAT scan, but everything looked good. Turned out I did have a UTI which they said spread to my kidneys. I have had kidney infections before, but not like this. Then, I thought I was having an allergic reaction to the antibiotics because I got a rash on my back and I’m allergic to most antibiotics. Turns out to be shingles! This is so unbelievably painful. Curious how long it may have taken others before the pain started to subside…
Also, I have a weird MS symptom that I’m curious if anyone else has experienced. Since about a month before being diagnosed I pretty much lost all my emotions. It was around the time I started feeling drunk/high. That feeling has gone away, but I’m still pretty much emotionless. All I’ve wanted to do was cry because of the horrific pain I’m in, but I physically can’t. The ER doctor was even shocked I wasn’t in tears. I was so afraid they wouldn’t even believe me that I was in so much pain. I know MS can cause depression or even mood swings, but I have nothing. My neurologist even asked me if I was depressed since I was just diagnosed and I told him I felt like my emotions have gone away and he didn’t seem surprised. Has anyone else had this? Part of me doesn’t mind because I used to have severe anxiety, but it’s taken my anxiety away. On the other hand, it’s super frustrating not being able to express myself. Anyways, I hope everyone is doing well. Thanks for hearing my mini rant and questions. I just feel like I’ve been thru so much this year, I’m in so much pain, and frustrated. I also don’t like hospitals, but I’ve been there so many times this year and hospitalized twice. Super frustrating! Take care!
