I was diagnosed with Transverse Myelitis last April by my neurologist. He felt there was no need for treatment at that time but told me if symptoms got worse in one year I was to go see him again.
He did tell me face to face and in writing it’s likely to turn into MS in later life. Of course this devastated me.
Luckily I have a very supportive partner to help me through the journey.
So for some time all symptoms disappeared, but for last month everything has been starting again and worse than last time along with knee problems.
i had numb fingers to start which then turned into painful joints in the right hands fingers. Then last week my feet went completely numb the other hands finger joints have started to become painful with the first hands fingers pain becoming worse.
Then my legs have felt heavier and my hips and legs are going numb now too.
About a month ago my gp put me on gabapentin to help with neuropathy but this has made no difference as you can read above.
My GP can’t see me until 18th July and it’s really getting to me. My mum told me to go to a&e but I’d feel an idiot going for these reasons
Any advice I would appreciate
