The Fog of 'Roids

Looking forward to providing more of an update in a few days...honestly, I've spent the better part of this weekend in bed. 

It was a tough adjustment for my body after three consecutive days of Solu-Medrol.  Even as I type this, my eyes are heavy and yawns frequently interrupt my typing.

But here is the great news -- I believe the steroids worked and my right foot has come back to life.  It's not perfect, my balance is a little more erratic than normal.  I'm not sure if that's because I was overcompensating for the past week while adapting to my right foot dragging or if it's just a part of my regular MS (balance/coordination comes and goes, as it pleases). 

I've hesitated posting anything, yet, because - well, I have been sleeping most of the weekend - and I didn't want to proclaim any success until after a few days post-steroids.
 
I'll follow-up more this weekend...my foot drop was accompanied by other new symptoms that, although don't really impact my mobility, are just as troubling.  I'm hopeful the Solu-Medrol worked some of those issues out, too.  Also, on Saturday I had pretty tough fall - I'm ok, thankfully there was only bumps and bruises but it was a painful reminder that with MS, there is no such thing as a sure step.

Happy Sunday to all!
