      Hi, welcome to the community. I don't know if you started medication, but my recommendation is to go to a neurologist and get medication as soon as possible. Each attack can be very difficult and sometimes there is no return to normal after attacks. Therefore, it is recommended to take treatment that will help control the disease.

      I was diagnosed in the middle of an exacerbation. The neurologist we saw gave us the list of the C.R.A.B. drugs and told us to find out all we could about them and we would decide which one I would do in a month. It only took two more months to get started on it. If you don't know what the C.R.A.B. drugs are they are Copaxone, Rebif, Avonex, and Betaseron.

      I would get a pneumonia shot. My pcp tried to tell and I declined. I ended up sick with pneumonia. The drugs they use make ur immune system more vulnerable to pneumonia. I guess they weaken u, well I thought she didn't know what she was talking about. Now I need a inhailer to breath. Woe me. I'm glad it was just a spec on my lung. When I caught bronchitis I believe it was really pneumonia because I went to urgent care for it and not the ER. It was weird I needed a inhailer instead afterwards. Then 7 months later I woke up not being able to breath and terrible chest pain. I haven't been diagnosed a year yet, it was knew to me.
