I’m currently awaiting a diagnosis of MS. I’ve had walking difficulties for a few years, plus various other stuff for a long while - flickering eyes, weak ankle etc. I have demyelination shown by an MRI, just waiting for consultant appt to confirm diagnosis which I believe will be PPMS because as far as I know I’ve had no relapses.
Symptoms haven’t really progressed for a long while - 3 years or so - but in the last couple of days I’ve noticed numbness spreading around on side of my back and around to my stomach. I have the number of an MS nurse but not sure what they could do as I’m currently on holiday.
What I want to ask is, because I’m likely to have PPMS, not RRMS, does that mean this numbness won’t ever go away?
Thanks for your help.
