Ideas Anyone...

Monday, March 14, 2016

I changed my MS medicine about 3-4 months ago. I'm happy to be able to take a pill everyday vs. injection. Now however, despite my exercising 5-7 days/week my weight is going up. I'm so unhappy about this. Anyone been down this road? What did you do? How did you stay positive?

    Is it a side effect of the med or just coincidence?
    Are you working out more? Did you up your caloric intake to adjust for more exercise? Ask the pharmacist or doctor. Is there a MS support group or hotline near you?

    OK.. I was put on one medicine and it caused my hair to fall out and then weight.. Been there.. Talk to your Doctor and let him or her know what is going on.. Let them make sure you do not have anything else going on... Heart.. Thyroid.. ect.. I wish I could tell you something to help but this is what happen to me.. and everyone is different.. So let me know what they say and I will be Praying that it works out.. There is so many new drugs out there and I am now on Infusion Treatments.. So It has been about a year and I work hard and I have about ten pounds to take off and the more I work to get it off the more it is here.. So get to the phone and do call.. They are the ones who know what else they can try... In His Love and Grace Just Me emoticon emoticon

    This is a tough one; so many meds play havoc with weight issues. Sorry I can't offer any helpful advice.

    Thanks BADMIKE. Scale doesn't derail me...i'm almost totally a nsv person. It's just the fact that my clothes are starting not to fit. emoticon

    Maybe you should try a different yardstick than the scale to measure success. Water weight can be an issue with mess and you can only do so much with it. Go with how you feel, or energy level, or resting heart rate. Don't let the scale derail you
