Miscellaneous

This afternoon, I’m having brain and spinal cord MRI’S, with and without gadolinium contrast. My neurologist wants me to have baseline MRI’S at the beginning of taking Vumerity.

This morning, I took my first full dose of Vumerity. For the past week, I was taking only the starting dose, which is only one-half of the full dose. So far, I’ve only developed mild flushing with this new MS-modifying medication. I haven’t taken a baby aspirin, before taking Vumerity, to lessen this expected symptom.

Yesterday, I was asked if I had any troubling symptoms that could possibly be linked to the coronavirus, prior to entering the nursing home where I provide psychological services. Some health care providers were wearing masks.

I know that I am more vulnerable to contracting this virus, given that I am currently taking immunosuppressant medication. I really hope that the coronavirus doesn’t affect the two nursing homes where I work. The residents there are extremely fragile.
