I have only very recently after an MRI scan been diagnosed with MS, indeed, I have not yet seen my consultant after the diagnosis. I have not been walking well for some years and have been tripped by my right foot which has caused me to have heavy falls. My balance on the right leg is poor I have also suffered a burning sensation in my thigh and pain around my right hip. These pains have at times so severe that I couldn’t stand or walk. I have been prescribed Neurontin which helps with the pain and I am walking with the aid of a stick. but don’t know what to expect when I see the consultant. The pain is bad on occasion and my right leg occasionally cramps really hard causing my thigh to lift and my calf to flex. I Will ask about obtaining a blue badge for my car and if I can claim disability.
Any comments and replies from anyone would be appreciated.
Best wishes to all
