So I was diagnosed with RRMS 6 years ago, had symptoms for 2 or 3 years before that.
My last MRI showed no new lesions but I’ve had new symptoms which come and go. Specifically numbness in my hands, burning in my feet and vibrating legs, occasional tightness around my middle and fatigue. Lhermitte’s sign is always there. My MS nurse said I’ve had no relapses.
I can’t get through a full 5 days at work and have had a lot of time off sick. I feel so guilty and anxious because my mind wants to keep going at full speed but my body won’t let me.
My sister in law also has RRMS and is declining despite no new lesions. I asked my MS nurse why and she said that the progression is around old lesions. Does this make sense to anyone? I find it all very confusing.
