I hope everyone is OK.
I would like to ask for some help and advice please (again :))?
I was newly diagnosed with MS (negative bands) in January, I have been trying to deal with this and carry on - so to speak. However, since then I have had 3 new significant symptoms - it appears they like to pop up once a month!
Electric shock and weakness in left leg (Jan)
Trigeminal Neuralgia with facial numbness (Feb)
Some blurred/double vision in left eye which also struggles to open (March)
I don’t know whether these are true relapses or just symptoms I have to get used to. I do seem to get better before the next one starts, i.e. starting physio for weakness, medication for TN and waiting to see what happens with my eye. I feel like at the moment I am taking one small step forward and another symptom will come up - TN being the worst so far.
The next steps are a MRI with GAD - although I have been dealing with symptoms for 6 months now, I always feel like I have to explain my situation due to negative bands or feel like I am not being entirely believed …
Sorry for the rant, but I don’t know what to do. People say to put everything to one side and let the neuro’s sort it out as it will not help the MS (which I know), but it is really difficult.
Many thanks just for listening/reading.
