Do I have SM?

Postby TarilynAlmighty » Sun Nov 25, 2012 8:59 pm

Hey everyone! It has been forever since I've posted anything on here. So, here is my issue.

I just recently stopped taking Topamax. I was on it for almost 2 years and I just changed jobs, so my insurance ended. Topamax was working great. I was taking it to help with my CM symptoms and for seizures. Anyways, so within that last month that I have been off my medication, I've been having serve back pain, balance problems, stabbing pains in my heart and in various other places. My back is so stiff and seeing the chiropractor hasn't helped. Also, hot water is less sensitive on the top of my back/neck. What should I do? Are these signs of SM?

I don't know your history but it sure sounds like it. You need an MRI and I suggest getting one while the getting is good. I know that I had to stop my Lyrica because of an insurance change and I had a lot of symptoms return that I'd forgotten about.

Thanks for the response! I'm not sure how to go about getting an MRI. It is like pulling teeth.
