Hey everyone, just wandered how long everyones relapses lasted. I know they do vary from person to person. My first epsiode seemed to last 4months with some residual symptoms left, then I had the hug for a week and now I've had what I think is TN and some mild parasthesia for the last 2 weeks.
I'm undiagnosed but my neuro said to contact if anything changed or worsened. The problem is by the time the neuro secretary responds and I even get seen the symptoms may have got better or not be the same. Last time with the hug I got no response and found out the secretary had gone on maternity leave incidentally. This time I've ended up struggling for the last 2 weeks (friday I could barely chew my food I was in agony) but the last one/two days it feels like it's more bareable and perhaps I'm over the worst.
Me and my neuro don't have the best relationship as it is anyway hence I don't jump to tell him everytime something new starts as I know he's likely just to send me off and say ignore it. I'm just worried about emailing his secretary now in case it all calms down and he accuses me of being pessimistic and a fraud (I waited to get my eyes and teeth checked last week to see if it was related to that). Does anyone else have these issues getting seen quick enough to get some help? I would even book to see my GP but it's a week and a half for an appointment and they're not to keen on doing anything without the neuro's advice. It feels a bit of a vicious circle.
Hope I'm making sense!
