PLEX Wearing Off

It has been two months since my last Plasma Exchange (PLEX) and I think it is beginning to wear off.

There are several indicators I use to make this assessment. First, my eyes hurt more and my vision is worsening again. Second, I have more cramps and involuntary limb movements again. Third, my walking and balance are slowly worsening and my hips hurt. Finally, most important of all, breathing is becoming more difficult.

All of this means that my body is still producing antibodies which are still attacking my nervous system. I will probably contact my neurologist and set up another PLEX in a few weeks.

Thanks again for your prayers and support.
