Well, today I think the MS big bad monster decided to spend some time with me, just to remind me he is still there.
Since my dx a few weeks ago, all has been fairly stable with just intense burning in left leg and spasms - mind you that is seriously impacting on my sleep so still wish it would bugger off!
Turned over in bed last night and aaaaarghhhh excrutiating pain in left groin area where leg meets groin, which felt a bit like when I had symphysis pubis when pregnant. Lingered all day making stairs rather unpleasant.
Fast forward to 3 this afternoon where I was happily meandering around Morrisons contemplating the marked down cream cakes ( ) I suddenly realised my left hip was aching a lot - then noticed I was kind of dragging my left leg and walking on outer edge of left foot. Staggered a few times but remained unscathed.
Drove off to Aldi on way home and was literally cockling over to the left whilst holding onto shelving as I went by. Loading onto conveyor and lurching around like one with a daytime drink problem!!
Drove v carefully home and rested leg, which seems a little better now.
Is this a relapse? Should I tell my GP if it persists? I don’t yet have an MS Nurse as am ‘in the system’ awaiting 1st appt in Newly Diagnosed MS clinic.
I’ve been talking to this leg all night, telling it I have far too much to do tomorrow without all this nonsense!
Is this how MS gets you? Just out of nowhere??
And I swear if I don’t sleep tonight I will be Evil tomorrow and probably posting incoherent nonsense on forums like I was at half o clock this morning!
