THC oil helps with the sleeplessness!

A CT scan will alleviate that fear! Very good luck to you and please keep us updated!

No problem! I was diagnosed at 49 and after going through Prednisone treatment, I was in remission for two years! I almost forgot that I had MP. Anyway, after a very stressful time in my life, the disease reared it's ugly head and I have been battling to get back in remission for over two years now. I have good days and bad days. Acceptance was hard for me, but once I accepted that this is something I will probably always have, my mental state improved.

Hi David,
Welcome to the group! I'm not sure that you need to rush for the biopsy to be done. In your situation, considering your past health history, I would want a clear diagnosis. Are they treating you with medication? I am currently on Prednisone (5 mg), tamoxifen (20 mg) and azathioprine 200 mg. I hope this helps!

That's good to know. I will let you know what I am on and leave it to your research skills lol. For the inflammation: Prednisone 5 mg. (I started out at 40 mg.), Tamoxifen 20 mg and Azathioprine 200 mg. (I have to get my blood tested because of this drug, I believe). For pain: Targin 5 mg and for breakthrough pain: Oxycodone. I have huge problems with sleep (the main suspect is the Prednisone), so I am also on a drop (0.2 mg) of THC before going to bed at night. I hope this helps!

Welcome @gussypup333 . Did they give you anything to help with the inflammation? Or for the pain?
