Hi everyone! I don’t really know that much about MS at all. I thought for a long time I just had a bad back.Some kind of trapped nerve or something. I was sure of it. So I did everything the doctors told me to do, and last week I was floored when the MRI scan showed inflamation which they seem to be sure the cause is MS. I’ve started some steriod treatment- Medrone and prednisolone. I’m awaiting a lumberpuncture to confirm it. When the neurologist broke the news it really brought my world crashing. But with the support of my partner,parents, brother and friends I bucked my ideas up and started looking on the bright side. I realised how many people have it at get on with it, and it was managable.
My parents, who I live with right now had previously booked a holiday which they were going to cancel due to this news, however I didn’t want them to do that so I told them to go and not to worry. My partner has also had to work away a lot too this week. Usually this wouldn’t be a problem at all, but it seems these steriods may have affected me a lot worse than I could have ever thought! I’ve never had a history of depression and I’m always a bubbly out going person who can see the bright side of anything. However I’m only on day 3 of these tablets and come night time I just cry and cry! It’s ridiculous! I would never even think about doing anything silly but I just feel so sad and my head is swimming. Is this normal???
Any advice would be so welcome as I would feel so bad to worry anyone close to me about this.
