Should I report relapses to the NHS?

I'm relatively new to MS, diagnosed in 2020 initially with "very mild benign RRMS" when actually by 2022 new MRI shows 2 legions on the spine and 2 on the brain (the spine were there originally in 2020 and missed). I've been wary of "everything becomes MS" from the diagnosis and I tend to avoid "bothering" the NHS (I know this isn't the point of the NHS!) - but in the last 3 days I've definitely had a relapse - practically fell over and was limping as my leg just didn't want to respond properly. I've captured my own record (with dates and the symptoms) but should I report this new symptom to the MS specialist service that I was assigned to? I feel kind of stupid letting them know something they can't do anything about (I'm also about to start DMTs in a matter of weeks). Thanks in advance.

@remys Yes, report it. They can then put it in your records, and over time will build up an overview of your symptoms, how they are affecting you, what happens when you have a relapse, etc, etc.


Also can give u steriods
