Hi eeveryone ,
hope you’re all well as can be and can offer me a few comments as I’m so down at the moment
have been very lethargic, stiff and anxious for a couple of months and last couple weeks have had horrible muscle spasms coming and going all the time, worse in the early hours if waken and when I get up.
The restriction to mobility and the pain is getting me down, I know it’s nothing compared to others but as it makes my anxiety worse all the symptoms get worse too. Now the spasms are spreading g see here and I am getti g the hug and IBS stuff, I’m fed up!! I am starting to wonder whether this is a relapse or my anxiety getting out of control. I’ve had a very stressful 2014 and am highly strung at present due to family traumas a d awaiting my first grandchild.
i take 50mg pregabin twice daily and 1mg diazepam when spasms are severe or I feel at risk of panic atteck. I’ve been diagnosed 5 years (now 58yrs old) although I think I’ve had ms from eay 20s. I don’t have any motor damage and my symptoms are all sensory in the main, I have never had any definate relapses as such other than one bout of optic neuritis 10 yrs ago, I vary so much on a daily basis it’s too difficult to tell.
All I know is my fatigue is the worst it’s been, my muscle spasms are the worst they’ve been and generally I e got some pain most days…I just want to feel in control even if its just knowing its a relapse and have to sit it out, suppose I hope if its fatigue maybe there’s more I could do to help myself? Probably just being pathetic but its do e me good to write it down knowing somebody on here will listen!
