Attacks!!

How do you define an ms attack?

I have been feeling not too bad for a few months but i can feel myself declining again. I feel off balance, tired, brain fog and my right arm and leg feel numb and odd. Is this an attack or is it just my symptoms reappearing because i have had all these before?

The official party line is any new or existing symptom that last for more than 24 hours and is not caused by infection or temperature changes. That being said I don’t think it’s always that simple…nothing with ms ever is is it? It’s so variable between people. If the symptoms don’t subside speak to your GP and or nurse and see what they suggest, might be worth having a sample ready to check for an infection. I hope that helps a bit and didn’t confuse you even more?! Laura x
