So I’ve had this stomach problem for a week now and it’s barely shifting, bloods have been taken by my GP which showed markers for inflammation, which I guess is caused by some sort of infection.
GP is saying its some form gastroenteritis, but a week on and no relief is a bit of a concern.
My MS symptoms have without doubt got worse over this period of time, theres no new symptoms, just the existing ones have tweaked up a good few notches, right leg dragging, no lift at all, muffled cotton wool feeling on hands and left forearm, and balance is worse than it has ever been.
This literally started overnight when I started to feel ill with the stomach issue.
My query is this, should I try to get steroids from the MS clinic ?
I’ve read a bit about flare ups V a Relapse, and from what I read both could be classed as the same thing, or at least very similar.
A concern is that a flare up due to infection could in theory still leave long term damage, just like a relapse, so therefor should I be asking for steroids, it’s a week now and the stomach issue is ongoing so the flare up will surely continue ?
