I was diagnosed with RRMS this year although I have had symptoms since 2007. I have had a couple of relapses this year; the latest one is affecting the movement in my right leg as well as sensory symptoms in both legs, back and blurred vision if I concentrate for any length of time. I have just been booked in for 3 doses of IV steroids starting on Monday. I have a few questions which I am sure many of you will be able to answer.
1. Will it be a bolus dose via a syringe or do they put up a drip?
2. If they put up a drip, roughly how long does it take before it is finished and I can get out of the day case unit?
3. What side effects should I expect to get?
I realise I should have discussed this with the doc, but was a bit distressed at the time, as was in a lot of pain and a bit emotional. I would be grateful if you could let me know what to expect.
