Relapse

I started having a relapse 3 weeks ago. I was put on IV steroids for 3 days. They seem to help for about 2 days after I stopped treatment. Then the pain came back but in a different location. Is it possible that my body is still being attacked? I am currently waiting on insurance approval to start a new medicine. My MRI was lit up like a Christmas tree. Many active lesions. Trying to stay positive, but really down.

@kim77 , Steroids are like that. They can give you an immediate high, which is then quickly followed by the “Steroid Crash”, when you come back down.

Bear with the Steroids, they’ll be working over the course of 6 – 8 weeks to help your body recover. But, you must rest up to allow this recovery to take place………

@stumbler thank you. I just get impatient. I had to go back to work yesterday, cannot afford to stay home. I work as a full time teacher and an a mother of two, so resting is not always easy to come by. Hope you are well.
