I am new to this forum and to MS in general after only receiving my diagnosis two weeks ago.
I am in hospital after visiting my GP for a check up - general how am I coping, etc. She noticed my leg spasms in my left leg, which were a new symptom along with my very frequent toilet trips (sorry if TMI)! Anyway to cut a long story short, they thought it was either cauda quina or MS mimicking it, so I was sent to hospital. After an MRI it was discovered that it was my MS and a slight urine infection. My consultant has planned for a neuro review and three days of steroids via IV drip.
The docs have started me on antibiotics for the urine infection and I guess I will start the IV drip today. I would like to ask:
a) whether I can have the drip and antibiotics
b) how did people find the IV steroids? I had steroids orally last time and although tough, they did work.
