I’m attending the inquest into my brothers death and it’s been the most stressful experience of my life. Stress is my main relapse trigger but I’ve not had this before.
From the bottom of my spine and between my thighs are completely numb. I can’t even feel it when I go to the bathroom. The soles of my feet are tingling like mad and there’s some numbness in my toes. I have on and off tingling in the palms of my hands and when I walk it’s like I have cusions on the soles of my feet.
My local MS clinic is a fair drive away and no where near my family so I don’t want to be stuck in there for 3 days in the ward on steroids as I need to be around my family at the moment. I’ve always been told that’s the way they give steroids for a quicker recovery. Is there a way I can have steroids without the IV? I really need to be in court every day as it’s very important to me that I know all the details. I really don’t mean to sound stubborn and under my bravado I show to the family I’m really frightened. Up till now my worst symptoms over the past 3 years has been recurring optic neuritis so this is all very new to me.
If I call NHS 24 over the weekend will they help me be seen at hospital? As this happened throughout the day and came on quite quickly, I haven’t had the chance to call my GP surgery for advice as I’ve been in court all day. Any advice would be highly appreciated. Sorry for the long post and the self pity. xx
