Hello - I got optic neuritis about 7 years ago , After around 2 relapses per year since then with just fatique the main issue usually wearing off after a week or so , I was diagnosed with a third lesion on my latest M.R.I scan .
My latest relapse was a new experience with balance and fatigue combining which happened on the 2nd May 2014. After seeing the MS nurse , she put me on 5 Days of medrone Steroids which ended a few days ago , Now I’m in a state of limbo with me still feeling pretty much like i did when i first encountered this last episode on 2nd May , My question is to any helpers out there , Where do you think i should go from here as i feel very low / Lonely and frustrated at the moment .
I have also been to the jobcentre plus to register for income help as i haven’t been able to work since the 2nd May. I was given a free phone call to speak to a guy about E.S.A in Glasgow, I Gave him a load of answers which took about 40 Mins to fill his online form in. He told me i would be sent the forms where i would sign them as a true account and then he told me to return them with my docters sick notes which would then maybe get me some benefits (Correct or Not) Any helpful suggestions would be very welcome, All this is a really new experience for me so i would really appreciate any advice from anyone whos been further down this road than i have currently gone .
Thanks Steve , newgolddream19.
