MS symptoms and recovery

MS symptoms and recovery i’m starting to have a lot of weakness in my body in my arms and legs I would like to know if anyone else has had these symptoms and been able to recover from them



@angela_powell I haven't been diagnosed with MS but suspect I have it. I have had a lot of weakness in both arms and legs. Sometimes I wonder if I am imagining it or I rationalise it... Must be because of this or that. We just had a staff meeting and had to walk a fair way there and back... Also walk to and from school. I really noticed walking from the school gym that I started off quick and strong as normal (have always been a fast walker) but didn't walk far at all and it was like my legs did not want to take me any further. I noticed the weakness on my arms showering this morn. I just find they seem to tire out quickly. Covid has meant getting an appt with neuro has been delayed. Saw my GP with concerns in May. See Neuro in October. I got so worried I asked what we could do to get tests underway. I have an appt with general specialist tomorrow. I will be asking for MRI. Has your weakness felt similar?



@angela_powell , as you're Relapsing Remitting MS (RRMS) then recovery may be possible, wholly or partly. But, are your medical team considering this to be a relapse? If so, then you should be talking to your team about your present medication, which may no longer be up to the job.
