Hope you are in the best of possible health..
I was diagnosed a week ago. The consultant just told me I have MS. Silly me went alone thinking it was like the last appointment where she just told me more tests will be done and it probably won’t be MS.. Any way, my mind went blank. I remember asking was will I be ok being a single mum to a 10 year old and 7 year old? She didn’t respond and went to fetch an MS info pack. All I remember her saying is that there were two lesions on my brain and two on my spinal cord..
I didn’t even ask how far my MS has gone or what stage I’m at? So I left clueless. She did say they will send me a letter regarding a meeting with the MS nurse. Haven’t received anything yet.
I feel I am having a relapse the past few days. Symptoms ranging from; heavy numbness/burning in both legs (this feeling is always there, I have just become immune to it) but has felt worse these few days, my back is very painful, been constipated with heavy bleeding once, when eating food feels like it’s stuck in my throat, itchy legs and itchy soles of my feet and heavy numbness before having diarrhoea. Once relieved the numbness is reduced? At times my head feels so heavy to hold up..
I have no clue what types of medication can help? But I do know I need to fix up on my diet, I have a sweet tooth which doesn’t help.. I drive everywhere which isn’t healthy. I’m planning on joining a gym to tone up and keep active..
Any advice, feedback, opinions or own stories are welcome 😊
Wish you all the best!
