I hope everyone is doing well.

I started Plaquenil 400 mg / day and have tolerated it pretty well for the last 2 weeks with minimal side effects.

I had Urodynamics testing and was diagnosed with Detrusor Sphincter Dyssynergia. DSD confirmed by Urodynamic study has two primary causes: Multiple Sclerosis and Spinal Cord Injury. okydoky....


I have my first appointment with Neurology in May and I'm supposed to get a spine / brain MRI then to assess my brain and spine. In the interim I am taking this stuff called Flowmax which is supposed to help prevent the complications in DSD and reduce the number of kidney infections I am having.

This is such a lengthy process.
