I wondered if any of you out there have had some similar medication to what I’ve just been prescribed? What was your experience?
I’ve just got back from a visit to the neuro. He said there was probably little they could do for me (it looks like PPMS) but I am a little unusual in the way my MS presented itself. He said that there was an outside chance that a high dose of steroids might help me and have some semi-permanent effect - i.e. my legs would be better for a few months. So I’ve come home with steroid tablets - To take 500mg every day for 5 days. Reading the leaflet, it seems 500mg is a pretty huge dose, and the side effects look pretty scary (they always do don’t they. but particularly so in this case). I’ve never taken any medication before. It’s probably years since I took an aspirin! The neuro himself said the most likely effect was either no good effect or I’d curse him for the side effects.
Any help much appreciated. Many thanks
