Chills yesterday afternoon.  Had to call care attendent to help me get in bed.  She left my powerchair with the front casters sticking out forward.  I felt okay when I got up around 5:30am...weak, but somewhat mobile.  Used my walker to move over to the powerchar and got my legs all tangled in the wheels.  Hit the floor.No damage done, but had to call the troups to lift me off the floor.

Update.  There was some damage done.  Lost about a silver dollar size patch of skin off my left knee and I have noticable and a little sore lump on the back of my head.

Things seem back to more or less normal today.

You lend new meaning to the two steps forward, one step back adage.  Feeling better?

Much better today.

I'm beginning to sense a pattern here.

I've been doing NAC, doxy and ritho continuously for a couple of years.  I've never been able to tolerate Metro, so I've skipped the pulses.

But, looking back over my blog entries, I get one of these episodes every 6-8 weeks.  Only lasts a day.

Question is: is that the CPN coming out of my cells and smacking me, or is that an MS pseudo-exacerbation?

I think it might be time to add Tinadizole to the mix.

Other complication is: I still work from home.  Spend 12 hrs a day sitting in my power chair with only occasional breaks to stand or take a six foot walk with my walker to the toilet and to/from bed.  My leg muscles are beginning to atrophy, if they haven't already.  I'm looking for some kind of exercise device I can use while seated...I've got the foot pedals on the chair in the way...and I can only lift my legs (using my arms) maybe 6-8 inches off them.  Suggestions?
