Looking for advice/suggestions

Hi,

i am a 42 year old mum of 2, with a full time job

I was diagnosed with MS 3 years ago and have recently had my 3rd relapse. I have pins and needles, numbness, stiffness and dead feeling in both my legs, and the sensation is moving up my body to my stomach and back. I have had a 5 day course of steroids to help speed the recovery, but I don’t think this has had any effect on my symptoms yet. I am getting a lot of back pains as I am struggling to walk properly aswell, and suffering with fatigue because of the pain!

i am still trying to work and working from home, which I find easier.

some days I find are better than others, but I sometimes feel really down and wonder if I will ever get better.

i am taking medication for the nerve pain, but am not sure what else I can do to help myself, when I speak to the doctor or MS Nurses they never have any answers and tel me to do whatever I find easier.

should I rest and get myself better or should I carry on as normal and push myself to try and get back on my feet quicker?

any suggestions?
