Not sure if you can help me with this as am I am unsure whether I have HSP or PPMS, but last weekend I had quite a traumatic experience… (My 21yo son ripped his arm on glass, severed his artery as well as nerves, tendons, muscles and other tissues. I had to put his arm back together whilst putting pressure on it to stop the blood until the ambulance arrived… he was floating in & out of consciousness… anyway… he’s fine, had a major op and has at least 6 months of physio ahead of him to gain use of his hand) But since then my whole body just feels broke!! So tired and weak… no energy to do anything. Legs stiffer than normal… but mainly I just feel so crappy!!
Can a traumatic experience make symptoms worse?
