Well I have spent 2 and half weeks feeling ‘ok’ really. Meds were keeping everything under control and my eyesight had improved massively.
And then I woke up this morning with blurry vision, feeling absolutely dreadful again, the tremors and jerking seem to be much worse today, the back spasms are back with a vengeance and I just can’t seem to stay balanced and have so far walked into 2 door frames and fell up the stairs. Oh and I forgot to mention the awful pain I am in - its like my hands have been put in a vice and my right leg has been stretched on a rack (and is once again not working properly).
My neuro appointment is on 25th September, and after undergoing 3 months of all the various tests ordered, my neuro was confident of diagnosing me then.
I have taken all my tablets this morning (as usual) - 2 x 50mgTramadol, 2 x 10mg Propranalol, 2 x 100mg Carbamazapine (and a hay fever tab :D). But the pain killer is just not working now, and the Carbamazapine (for the tremors/jerks) don’t seem to be either. On the plus side though, the hay fever tab has kicked in and is working fine :D.
Should I go back to my GP (I have an appointment next Wednesday anyway) and report all this. I would phone the neurologist, but when I have done that before they seem to refer me back to the GP for now.
It has taken an absolute age type this out as my thumbs have remained numb since April, and now my fingers and hands hurt so much!
Anyway, any help/advice would be appreciated.
I am hoping that you are all having a good week/day/hour xx
