I am very early stages (Around 9 weeks) into my second pregnancy and things are not going as smoothly as they did with my Daughter!
I was going into relapse when I found out I was pregnant the first time and literally within 3 weeks all symptoms subsided and I felt the most well I had done in years! It was amazing!
This time, all was well until a few weeks ago I got the same numbness in my hands as last time but this has now become so strong I can barely hold a pen with my right hand. The numbness which is permanent in my feet has now spread right up to just under my chest. It’s almost feeling like I am wearing a corset! It’s really quite uncomfortable and is disturbing my sleep. I’m really worried about my little girl who is only 1 as I am struggling to play with her, lift her and even push her in the buggy.
I am waiting to see my Neurologist later this week but I’m not sure she will actually be able to do since I’m so early in the pregnancy and I only had a dose of IV steroids about 4 months ago.
Has anyone else experienced this? I’m hoping it’s because I had a really bad fall a few weeks back and a heavy cold and so it’s just brought this nasty bought on. Fingers crossed as this little baby grows I will start to feel better as I did last time!
Can anyone suggest anything to at least make it feel a little better?!!
