Hi was wondering if someone could clarify what counts as a relapse or new episode?
I’ve been ill since April and have so far been diagnosed with CIS but am due to have an MRI scan, VEP and SSEP test within the next 6 weeks by which time they will hopefully know more.
My question is that I’ve been ill since April and haven’t fully recovered but have had a new symptom of my right arm not feeling like its connecting properly. I didn’t have any problems with my right side before - it all started on my left. The symptoms that I have been left with since April are the dizziness/vertigo and nerve pain which affects my head, left side of face, neck and left arm.
Because this is a new symptom should I speak to the gp about it and also is it classed as a relapse or a new symptom or is it still classes as the same original one?
Would be great for some advice. Thanks
