My partner dragged me into a&e yesterday because the numbness in my legs is getting worse (struggling to wiggle my toes) and I’ve been having back pain. GP told us to go up to a&e if it got worse because there’s nothing they can do for me. After waiting 2 hours in an empty waiting room the doctor went back over everything I’ve been explaining all week and begrudgingly went to check if my MRI results were back. They were - spine is clear but there are 3 new lesions on my brain, all stable and not causing problems she says. I asked 3 times if my lesions aren’t causing it why can’t I feel my legs, she just kept changing the subject said a neurologist would be in touch in the meantime “just deal with it”
That upset me more than anything else “just deal with it” obviously I am trying to deal with it but I can’t walk around the house without a walking stick, I can’t wiggle my toes properly, on Monday they said that if there were new lesions they would start me on the steroids, yesterday she said they don’t need to start me on steroids.
Sorry for rambling I’m just getting so frustrated with the whole situation, thank you for allowing me to ramble.
