Metal Mouth

When you were a kid, did you ever put a piece of something metallic in your mouth? That wonderful metallic taste is the flavor that wipes out everything else for me when I have my solu-medrol treatments.

Solu-medrol is an intravenous steroid that is supposed to help keep the MS inflammation at bay & is frequently prescribed to help shorten the length of time a person is impacted by a relapse.

Today I am sitting at the infusion center – with the IV tubing sticking out of my hand & wishing I still had the taste of the eggplant I ate for lunch – as opposed to this wonderful metallic flavor I will now enjoy for the next day or so.

While I hate the taste - I keep hoping that this drug will work & keep the disease at bay... :)
