How I am 7

Sorry, these are not very interesting or public, but this is a good place to
keep a permanent record that's useful when trying to track long-term changes.

Almost 25 months from being diagnosed, 24 months on Betaferon.

Right heel tendonitis has improved, but now have issues with something similar
in left knee.  But no real connection with MS that we know of.

Otherwise, things continue as usual - about every 4-6 months there's a period
when symptoms seem to flare up, and currently I'm in one of those.

Something relatively new is muscles twitching in my face and lips, but an NMR
soon after I started feeling those showed nothing new.  It's worth noting,
perhaps, that I had similar symptoms years ago - went to La Serena hospital
wondering what was happening and was prescribed a tranquiliser (in retrospect
perhaps an early small outbreak).

A few nights recently I have woken with pins+needles in my hands, similar to
the first big outbreak.  That may be swelling from re-mylenisation - arguably
my right hand has improved slightly (very slight, very sparse pains in hand,
ache today in arm).  In response I took a little Ibuprofen and did some
exercise (cycling, despite knee).  Things seemed to improve (suggesting
inflamation?).

Other than that, some twitching in legs (lower, inner thigh - a new area) and
more sensitivity to touch in the band in the upper chest.

In short - just small details.  Lots of "noise", no clear long-term trend.

Hello to future self.  Hope you are OK.

Andrew
