Hi everyone, I was diagnoided with ms in May. Nuero reckons I have had it at least 10 years, but was treated for fibro all along.
i am normally able to manage the pain but the last 3 weeks it has become unbearable, nothing is hitting it even morphine which I only use rarely is nearly taking the edge off it. The pain is the worst in ankles, knees and feet the feel like the are banded really tightly and like some one is drilling into them( if that makes sense). The pain has now spread to all my ankle and leg muscles and I feel like I am losing my mind.
i am not properly in the system here yet( I live in dublin) so I have no ms nurse as back up. I am a busy mum of 5 who also works outside the home and generally very positive, but at the moment I would like to go to bed and not wake up. I am not being dramatic when I say that but I cannot cope with any more pain, my body just needs a break. Is this a relapse, and if it is is there any point in going to a&e they cannot give me any stinger painkillers than I already have.
just to add to the general joy I tried using a stick today as walking is agony and fell over it twice, how on earth do you master using them. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
