My wife has PPMS and in August 2018 had a spell in hospital and was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis as part of her treatment she was given steroids.
These made a vast improvement in her condition no more spasms or nerve ending pain she felt so much better all round and was able to stand with help which she had not been able to do for the last two years plus lots of other small things but the most important was she was without pain 24/7
During all this time she did not take any of her regular medication there was no need.
When the course finished the pain, spasms etc returned so we contacted both our doctor and the MS nurse to see if we could get steroids but in both cases met with a firm no.
Has anyone had similar experience or are you on steroids and if so which ones and how often? I’m trying to gather information so that I can go prepared the next time we see the consultant this time in June and will ask him.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
