I’ve started to really struggle with my symptoms over the past few months but being without a 100% diagnosis means I’m also without treatment/assistance part.
(I do take 50mg amytriptaline but this is all and it isn’t relly helping).
I’m struggling to walk more than a couple of 100m and my gait is slow, awkward, painful. Rising from a sitting/lying position is near impossible due to muscle tightness in my hips/thighs and muscle weakness, poor balance. What can I ask my GP for to help with this?
The crushing pain from the muscle tightness and crawling sensation is really bad 24/7, the amytriptaline and anything I can get over the counter isn’t helping. Are there medications my GP can perscribe without a 100% diagnosis?
I’m struggling with fine motor control meaning it’s difficult to type, write, text (I work in an office), what aids could help with this as I need to be able to work to support myself.
I’m struggling with focusing, tracking words on screen etc. Other than an opticians appointment is there anything else I could ask to have done or that might help with this?
I’m also really struggling with continence issues, what is there available to help with these issues? Currently I’m wearing pads and praying I don’t have an accident whilst at work.
Sorry for the essay, I just really need some advise right now.
