The Eternal Question

Is this MS or just age, lack of sleep, lack of exercise, stress, or _______________ (fill in the blank)? I am so tired that I literally closed my eyes and fell asleep for a few seconds in the bathroom stall at work this afternoon while taking a pee. I have floppy head syndrome (my name for the feeling that my neck is not totally holding up my very heavy head). I felt tingling in my right hand and my eyesight isn't great (I thought my coworker who sits maybe 10 feet away was eating a muffin and she was actually biting into an apple). I'm going to wait a bit before calling the neuro because he told me to call after symptoms lasted for 3-5 days. I'm trying to stay in the day and not imagine the steroid infusions, MRIs, etc. Just for today, I am taking my syringe of Rebif up to my room, giving myself my shot, and going to sleep.


  1. I am totally with you. My symptoms are getting worse. I caved and emailed my doctor. I hope they can help.

  2. Sounds like the MonSter flexing its wings. Sleep. That's about all you can do so you may as well enjoy it lol. Feel better soon :-)
