What is MMSS

I have taken propanolol for my rapid heartbeat in the past, it just made me get bronchitis more often and made me do stupid things. When you are driving you got to watch propanolol, If a paper would slip on the floor I would pick it up and not pay attention to where I was going, I would wind up almost going off the road or in another lane. I didn't like the buzz. It took about two months to get the bad effects, it is a beta blocker and anti-choline drug.

What does this have to do with hypochondria? You have real condition, not an imaginary one right?

I assume based on your prescriptions that you mean multiple sclerosis? I'm truly sorry to hear that, OP. I'm hopeful your doctor will be able to adjust or change your scripts to make management more bearable for you. For what it's worth, depending on your individual case, MS can be intermittent - called remitting MS - rather than progressive. So it's at least conceivable this won't be a 24/7 365 days a year issue for you. But I'd be lying if I said I wouldn't be severely freaked out too if I were in your shoes.

Alas I have no advice. Hopefully others will chime in. For what it's worth, I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. So sorry you're going through this.

Peace.

What a bummer. Really sorry you are going through this dreadful disease. I've got issues of my own and lots of bad effects from taking abut 26 pills a day and lots of insulin shots-with their own side effects. I wish we were hypochondriacs-I hate the medical profession-if you can call it that.
Best wishes-my best advice from others-just plow through it. Don't let it consume your thoughts.

Not sure what MMSS is, but I hope you feel better soon.

Just finished giving myself an infusion through a picc line, get to do that every 8 hours. Yay
While it may suck, it helps my body fight what's going on.

A new diagnosis is never easy, especially when pills and injections and whatever else start to become part of your daily routine. There are lots of online support groups for specific medical conditions. They were really helpful to me, just knowing you're not alone, that someone else is going through what you are.

If you're freaked out about not seeing your doctor until the 28th, call them and let them know how you are feeling. You have to make sure you're taking care of your emotional wellbeing just as much as your physical.

You'll get through this! Wishing you all the best.

With my particular case of MS I get a lot of people who don't understand the disease and give me flack about, saying it's all in my head when it's been clearly diagnosed by a neurologist. And I have 2 MRI's coming up, on spine and head and neck, and they get snippy with the "thought you already went through that" tripe.
Anyway, Failed my rant post, sorry

Thank you to those who chipped in with advice. I do appreciate it.

Glad to hear you are continuing diagnostics and treatment. I do hope the course of treatment can be made more bearable for you.

Yeah, with health maladies - be they physical or psychological (and yours has implications for both, but is very much physical regardless of whether people understand that) - many people simply won't ever get it unless they experience it. Just know it's largely from inexperience and probably not malicious. I know that doesn't necessarily make it any easier, though.

I hope things level out for you. Best wishes.

Peace.
