Well, I finally had my long-awaited GP appointment yesterday, and on my shopping list of things to talk about was my seemingly neverending, unexplained “cold”.
I’ve been given a steroid nasal spray, to try to calm things down.
I realise it’s not exactly the same stuff that would usually be prescribed for MS: however, it appears to be pretty similar, because the precautions say it can only be prescribed “with care” to patients who have recently had either intravenous or oral steroids.
I really hope it works for the “cold” (which is obviously not a cold), but I’m really curious to see whether it will, incidentally, calm any of the MS symptoms too. I know, I know, I’m really hoping for miracles here, aren’t I? But it looks as if I’m going to be on it for at least a couple of months, as she said to finish the course! I’d assumed the course would be a few days, but in fact, it’s 150 doses - at only two per day - so 75 days, then.
I wonder if I’ll feel any better generally, after 75 days of sniffing steroids? I’ll be happy if it only fixes the “cold”, but it would be a bonus if it helped anything else too.
