I originally had RRMS but now have SPMS. I am usually able to walk around the bungalow or on a bad day use my powered wheelchair and when outdoors I use a scooter (we’re awaiting adaptations to the bungalow as I can’t get the wheelchair out and I can’t access the toilet/bathroom with it). Unfortunately after a severe spasm in the calf of my leg when I went to get up this morning, I’m not able to move my right leg at all and my left one is not strong enough to stand on for more than a few seconds.
This is the first time this has happened since my RR days and I’m in a bit of a dilemma for the reasons I’ve given. I contacted my OT this morning & she’s going to organise some equipment for me until the adaptations are done & I’ve rung the Dr as suggested by her, who has prescibed a 5 day course of steroids, which I’m dreading! He asked if I’ve spoken to my MS Nurse which I haven’t & I haven’t an appointment any time soon so I don’t know whether to send her an email or ring her secretary. I’ve never had to do this before as I had regular appts with her & I hate having to trouble her as her workload is great and I don’t know what she could anyway? Any thoughts please would be much appreciated.
On a lighter note, isn’t the weather glorious
