He had 2 stents put in for coronary blockages yesterday and started these medications today. His blood sugar jumped to 180 today.
From this study (5 days ago):
I am suspicious that my stiffness might be caused by the avonex. After taking the pen type Avonex, my stiffness got noticeable worse about 24-48 hours later. I saw the neurologist 47 hours ago, and she indicates my MS is very stable and has been for 15 + years. I use a cane but lately, I can barely move when I first stand up and even after a few seconds, I still feel very stiff. My walking is not as good as it was when I first started the ampyra. hould I take a drug holiday? Would that help me figure this out?
