MS and a Million Questions!
My friend is 32 years old and diagnosed about a year ago with MS. 8 years ago, she was told she had a pseudo tumor on the brain which was causing pressure etc. She had to have a spinal tap to relieve pressure and had an MRI. Apparently her doc didnt tell her that she had a "demyelinating disease" then and so now she is taking it pretty hard.
She has recently had some black outs that are really scaring her. She is on a gammet of medicines but she wants to know if anyone else has had anything like this happen. She was on Aricept and had extreme side effects including hearing things, voices, etc and seeing things. She stopped taking that after about 2 weeks.
She has many many questions. But she really wants to know if anyone else has had black outs where they are conscious & active but remembers nothing or has no memory of things she has done. Im afraid all the medications are having side effects. Also, are most people w/MS on tons of meds including drugs for depression, to sleep, etc. Rebif,oxipam or lebrium to sleep, adderall?
Can extreme stress effect her? She has recently been fired from her job. Any and all information would be appreciated and passed on! Thanks.
