As there had been considerable deterioration with my walking/balance my consultant ordered an mri with contrast in a 3T scanner when I saw him in December. We discussed my options depending on whether my problems were being caused by neuro inflammation or degeneration. These options are very limited as I have progressive ms. My mri took place at the end of January and I am still waiting for the result! I have spoken to radiology incase there was a backlog of reports at their end, there was not. I have telephoned the secretary twice who always promises to call me back but she does not.
I have had three falls since Christmas (one when my legs collapsed under me). I asked my GP to refer me to a neuro physio and I have had a couple of sessions but at the moment the exercises are causing a lot of muscle fatigue. Hopefully this will improve but because I have too much tone in my legs it is difficult to strike a balance.
I have new orthotics and I have switched from a single channel FES to a dual channel as my right hip flexors do not want to lift my leg. All the above will hopefully help and yet the cause is unknown. Feeling very frustrated!
Much to my annoyance the hospital sent me a text recently asking if I would recommend them to family or friends, unfortunately no room for comment just to give a mark out of 10!
