As the Clash once sang!
im new here, I haven’t been fully diagnosed yet and have had 1 flare up where I was numb from my feet to chest all over. I also had cramps in hands and found it hard to open jars and more frustratingly play my guitar. It has been 2 years since iv felt anything worthy of worrying about. I have suffered with anxiety and depression since then and have become a complete hypercondriact!
Basically this week iv had a few slight slight tingles, itching and few aches but nothing major, they seem to have gone away but I was at the doctors for something else and asked him about it. He checked me over and checked my eyes. One eye the pupil is dialating slower than the other. I have noticed an ever so slight numbness in left side of face, the same side as dodgy pupil. When I say slight I didn’t really notice but feel it’s got worse today. My eye doesn’t really hurt but slightly achey which can come and go and corner slightly hurts but I have rubbed it a couple of times.
My big question is… Il worries this could be the start of a relapse and possible ON and I’m going away to blackpool to watch rugby this weekend and have a few beers. I’m in norfolk so this is 5 hours from joke for me. I’m going with 2 mates and his dad. I’m also going to wembley on Monday. What I’m really worries about is whether this should hold me back from going? I don’t want to have to go and get medical help in a city I don’t know and last time I was in hospital for ages! I don’t want to be a burden one friends and them to miss out. I also am unsure what would warrant a hospital visit? (I’m thinking more if my eye goes blurry, loss of vision etc) any advice or help would be greatly recieved.
