I was diagnosed in April 2014 with RRMS and the consultant reckons i have had it since 2009
I had a few symptoms and minor problems up to October last year. I went down with a chest infection that triggered a relapse.
The relapse effected my mobility a lot and my balance. I have been off work since October and i have had steriods before christmas but they did nothing for me.
I am still suffering with my mobility and balance and also the fatigue. I have been seeing neuro physio since November and this has helped me alot. But i still can’t walk far due to the pain and Fatigue. I also suffer with my bladder either being over active or wanting to go but can’t.
I started on Tecfidera in January and i have been lucky as i didn’t suffer too much with side effects.
I am currently taking Gabapentin, Duloxitine and Amitriptyline for the pain but they are not really working as by the end of the day the pain is unbearable.
I have just collected my first wheelchair this morning. I know i need it as i can’t walk far but i am finding it hard accepting it in my head. I feel sorry for my wife and son’s having to push me around.They have all been great with me and nothing seems a problem to them.
I am getting a bit concerned as i have been off work for nearly 7 months and i am not improving.
As i am now i would never manage work.
Is there still a chance i could improve ?
Any advice would be Appreciated.
