I was diagnosed back in September, having had my first episode in 2012 and my second in April 2017, which ultimately led to my diagnosis.
My consultant at the time said that I would not be given DMTs unless I have more than one relapse within two years.
Unfortunately, at the weekend (it is Wednesday now), I woke up and my right foot was numb by Sunday this had spread up my right leg (with numb patches on my left leg) and by Monday I was almost completely numb from the waist down (there are some patches that are OK). The numb sensation is only skin deep as I am fully functioning aside from this.
I called my MS nurse yesterday who is seeing me at the relapse clinic on Friday and has said that this certainly sounds like another relapse instead of a flare up of old symptoms.
My question for all of you is what sort of relapse experience did you have after diagnosis? Have you found that you relapsed relatively soon after your initial diagnosis? And is there anything that you think would be useful to bring up with the MS nurse based on your life experience?
Thank you so much in advance
