Hi Sylvia, sorry to hear you’re going through such a hard time hon.
It’s true, MS and maybe particularly PPMS does not like stress!
The sad loss of your father and then moving house have both had an impact. I know when I moved three and half years ago it took me about 6 months to recover!
But it also sounds like you are depressed… feelings of panic are a sign of depression … and of course all symptoms feel worse when we are depressed.
There’s some great antidepressants out there… they really do help… and LOADS of MSers get depression.
It’s a double whammy really because this damned desease is hard to live with and we get depressed, but also the MS nibbling away in our central nervous systems affects our emotions… the actual lesions can muck about with our emotions… so two reasons why we get depressed!
Go and see your GP hon and get something for depression.
Amitriptyline is a good one to try as it also helps deal with MS pain (the main reason why many MSers are prescribed it)… but it’s a powerful antidepressant too. Give it a try!
Hope this helps hon and that you go and get something that helps.
