Hi all, i’m a 43 year old female who has suffered with various symptoms over the past 3 years. I was referred to a rheumy who told me i had polymyalgia, after being on steroids for 10 months and symptoms getting worse he then referred me to a neurologist. i went to see her a couple of weeks ago and she suspects MS so sending me for a MRI scan.
what i would like some advice on is my mobility. i cant walk very far without the use of a walking stick not because of balance but because of pain. the more i walk the heavier/weaker my legs become and the more intense the nerve like stabbing pain becomes in my legs and i get very painful muscle tightness in my lower back and have to sit down to relieve it.
does anyone else suffer the same and how do they over come it.
