Hi everyone, 

Flare-ups are the worst... It is really hard to cope physically and mentally. I'm so sorry to read that you're in pain @mrscarone‍ Personally, I'm trying to prevent them by avoiding stress. Everyday, I'm doing some exercices of yoga or just meditation if I'm not feeling so good. And I try to be as rested as I can be.

Obviously, support from your loved ones is important but family and friends don't always understand...  And you can find this support elsewhere @KimberlyCollins‍  don't hesitate to share your feeling, your joy or your pain here. There are some really good listeners on Carenity.

Flare ups are dreadful. My daughter lives with me and even she doesn't get it. I am refusing iv steroids right now so I ask her to leave me to myself for the most part. When I need help she's there to help me. The thing that helps me the most is prayer. It cuts my depression time in half with a flare up. Keeping your spirits up keeps the stress level down.  Reducing stress especially during a flare reduces the length of the flare.

@KimberlyCollins What really helps me besides preventive measures (anti-stress things like stretching, etc.), are the steroids my doctor prescribes. It stops the inflammation and helps everything calm down.

My flare ups are maninly numbness in the right leg, left hand, and my head, What triggers them are mostly being anxious or upset. Sometimes crying as well starts a relapse. The worst part is headaches. They are almost daily and severe. I just rest and have a deep sleep with a pain killer.. That’s it.

I was diagnosed about a year ago and it took the prior year to figure out what was causing my symptoms.  My neurologist and I have been working to get my symptoms under control.  I have went from a oral medication to fusion.  I have only been on the infusion for a few weeks and it seems to be helping.

I have had many symptoms such as numbness, weak extremities, trigeminal neuralgia, nerve pain, extreme fatigue, vision issues and hearing loss.  I have been sleeping a lot and really haven't found anything that works.  I try to walk as much as I can in the neighborhood.
