Hiya. I am in the newly diagnosed category. I will be starting DMT Tecfidera in the New year. Its on order already. I am still not feeling much apart from “Well this is MS – not ME!!” I am still getting on with all my chores, laughing and joking as normal. 😉
Now, I am thinking of developing myself an ‘MS First Aid’ box/kit. This will hold everything I think I may need should I have a relapse. The sort of things you wish you had when things flare up at the weekends or when I cant get to the shop/GP/hospital.
So what would be on your list? eg…..Paracetamol, Brufen, a few inco pads, antihistamines, a good book, tissues, aromatherapy oils ???
What would you avoid or advise against using?
What can I ask the GP to prescribe prophylactically? (when I am at a low ebb, I am prone to cramps spasms, pain, numbing tingling, uncoordinated) I am most fearful of the spasms.
I think I will have a grab bag ready for any emergency trips. Saves faffing around.
