Diagnosed with SPMS Christmas Eve. I had another MRI yesterday on head, neck and spine. Was in there for a reasonable time and experienced the usual discomfort with remaining stationary throughout. When they had finished, I couldn’t move with back and neck pain. Aches & Pains eased over time after I started moving about, which is fairly normal for me. It didn’t help that I had a 1 hour drive home sitting in a car on the M1 on a Friday evening.
I took the normal medication last night and had a broken nights sleep.
This morning, I was on so much pain all down my back, with new sensations, involuntary movements and general difficulty controlling movement of my left leg. Even moving my eyes felt uncomfortable, although my vision doesn’t seem to be affected. During the day, the movement has started to return to normal, so I’m not unduly worried about that,
My last MRI was back in 2013, I guess the question I have is regarding the aches and pains. It feels like I’ve been thumped all over my sides and back, but I can’t see any bruising etc. Is this to be expected ? Have others had similar experiences.
I’m hoping it all just side effects to the magnetic fields involved.
