What was this?

Morning all, hope you are all keeping safe and well.

I’m newly diagnosed, rrms since Jan this year and on tecfidera since April.

So a couple of days ago I had something that wiped me out completely but only for a couple of days, bad aches in arm and legs, chills and overwhelming tiredness, couldn’t get out of bed for the first day and second day had to keep lying down after every task, day three right as rain.

It feels too short to be flu, not like a cold, and not covid, I took a test…any ideas? MS related?

I’ve been going through a lot of stress recently linked to teenage daughter not wanting to go to school, could it be stress related? My doctor has signed me off work for a couple of weeks as I work full time and dealing with challenging teen and working was getting too much!

Any thoughts? I find it hard know if it’s ms or something entirely separate.


Hi, my guess initially would’ve been a cold…or reaction to vaccine…but you’ve already discounted those. But yeh, teenagers can knock you back even when you’re fit. Mine did!
