i am am new to this so I am not sure if I have posted in the correct place! I have been diagnosed with MS for a few years now. I have been lucky so far as in I only really get symptoms once per year. I am finding that it could be stress and anxiety that make my symptoms worse. I have recently had a baby and and up until this point I had been mostly symptom free for at least a year. I had an appointment with my MS nurse as she said sometimes after having baby you have a relapses. I attended the appointment thinking she would just ask how I was and I would go back to annual reviews but she suggested that I have another MRI and maybe think about treatment options. I have now left the appointment really anxious that this MRI will show worsening damage or even another medical condition. this has caused me worry and I am anxious everyday. I think up until this point I have maybe been in denial and now I am facing medication and scans my stress and anxiety are causing me to have new symptoms. I have started having muscle twitches to go along with my muscle pain. I know you should never google anything but twitches dont seem to be a MS issue so now worrying even more which is making symptoms worse. I have sensible moments through each day and I have been carrying a 5 month old heavy baby which are making my muscles sore and trying to relate that to twitching as well. Does anyone else think anxiety makes symptoms worse? And does anyone have twitching as part or their MS? I have been looking at forums and lots of people seem to have twitching and they say it is a common symptom. I have my MRI in a few weeks. I dont think I can handle the worrying all this time.
