So I’ve been looking back over the last year at the progression of my symptoms, prompted by my car MOT of all things! A year ago I knew I could walk a couple of miles at a time with no problems (that’s how far the car garage is from my home) but now I know that to try and walk that sort of distance, even with a walking pole, would be really pushing my limits and likely leave me done in for the rest of the day. I’ve also noticed that my walking has generally become a bit more unstable so when I got my (first) annual MRI checkup last month I fully expected it to show some deterioration however the letter I got from the Neurologist says that there is no indication of any new lesions so no need for an immediate consultation.
Now this is obviously good news but I’m left wondering do symptoms advance without the need for any sort of relapse occurring? I’m starting to wonder if my new symptoms are all in my head!
