I'm currently experiences a very scary symptom. For over a week now, I've had pain behind my eyes. Dr. Friedberg said that it was a common MS symptom and nothing to panic about. Then I wake up yesterday and my eyes felt weird. They kept watering and felt like they were covered in a thick layer of goo. My vision wasn't compromised, they just felt weird. Then in the afternoon, while we shopped for household items at Target, I started having weird feelings. It wasn't anything in particular, I just felt odd. As we're heading to the checkout lane, I saw a flash and then a black void appeared in my right eye. It's still here. I can see through the eye, but there is a black line from the upper inside corner to the lower outer corner. This scares me because the feelings I had yesterday and today are the same as when I loss vision in my left eye (which has gotten better, but never returned). I'm trying not to panic, but if my vision hasn't improved by tomorrow morning, I will start making emergency appointments with whoever can see me.
Despite all this craziness, I'm having a really good day. I woke up really early this morning to finish cleaning our apartment, then got all snazzied up to meet my BFF for coffee. I didn't drink any coffee (I'm allergic, not to caffeine), but it was really good to see her and catch up. Unfortunately, I couldn't stay long because I had to meet with the Betanurse today at 1 pm. We do have plands for the near future to see "UP" and I can't wait!
Speaking of the Betanurse, she arrived right on time and was gone in less than 30 minutes. There really wasn't much for her to do because Betaplus send a very detailed video with the training kit and after watching that, I knew how to do it. Although there is some hassle when it comes to mixing the medicine, the actually shot was easy-peasy. I didn't even feel the needle go in and I didn't have to use the autoinjector. I guess all the bragging about having the "thinnest needle in MS treatment" is worth it. I don't have anxiety about future injections.
Now let's just keep our fingers crossed that it doesn't make me sick.
