hope you are all well. I haven’t been on this forum in quite some time now, but thought I could pop on for a bit of advice. I remember I used to post a lot of questions when I was first diagnosed two years ago & you lot were amazing!
anyway, I’m currently living down under in New Zealand at the mo on a working holiday visa! Been experiencing some really bad symptoms- the onset of them was about a week ago, but they’ve gradually got worse. Now my mobility is shot- not completely immobile but I’ve got real bad foot drop on rhs, lack of coordination, unsteady in my feet, dead right arm pins and needles the usual loveliness! Not many sensory symptoms, which I could actually deal with! But the fact that I’m so nervous and unbalanced on my feet is preventing me for going about my day to day life as normal. I got a dose of steroids from my GP from the UK- dexamethasone 2MG tablets. Should I start taking them? I don’t really have much support over here, no gp, ms nurse or anything like that! Plus, doctors visits cost a bomb!
the 2mg dexamethasone tabs are prescribed on the bottle to take 2x tabs 3 times per day then reducing by one tab daily. Am I correct is taking these for 6 days? Sorry seems a silly q but I can’t really ring anyone for advice. Only ever taken oral steroids once way back in 2013 so I can’t really remember.
