Hi my partner is having a very bad time with his MS and has been for a few months. He has pain in his feet and legs that’s brought him to tears, he says it feels like blocks of ice and barbed wire. He has been prescribed cocodamol… but they are not doing much to help. He is meditating, that has been his saving grace. He has bladder problems which are worsening, he has been put on a list for a scan for checking for a blockage, this could take 8 months. I want to try and pay private if we can, i keep getting told he needs a referral, the clinic have referred him to nhs hosp, they say the gp will have to do it, the gp says he doesn’t know what he is referring it should be the clinic. The neurologist then tells us once the bladder issues are resolved, his other symptoms that are heightened including the pain will calm or disappear.
I am not sure what I am expecting in reply to this post… perhaps hope?
