As you can tell from the title I am currently in limbo and need a little help. I was diagnosed with CIS about 6 weeks ago. My neurologist said it is more likely than not it is MS, as it is very likely that I have had a previously undiagnosed less seveare event about 1 year ago.
During this event I had symptoms for about 3 months of mostly numbness, stiffness, pins and needles, and fatigue. Then for the past two weeks my syptoms started to improve, until I only noticed numbness in my feet. The fatigue is always present. Now my symptoms appear to be worsening again, with the numbness increasing and stiffness returning.
If anyone can help me with any of my questions below that would be great, I know some questions probably no one can answer, but advise would also be good, if anyone has any.
Is this a relapse, a continuation of demyelination from the CIS, or is it just that I may not have improved fully yet?
Will these symptoms ever fully go away, or is it normal if they come and go or quite a while.
Is there any help I can get in the mean time?
When will I know if I am having a relapse if my symptoms keep coming and going from the first event had?
Thanks in advance to anyone that replies.
