Hi all, I was diagnosed only in June 2017. I started taking Tecfidera on Boxing Day 2017.
A week ago I developed flu, which knocked me for six. Yesterday I had shallow, rapid breathing and a racing heart and I called 111 as something just didn’t feel right. Because of the responses to some of the questions, they despatched an ambulance. They sent a crew round to assess me, wanted to take me in to hospital but due to my MS we came to an agreement that an out of hours GP would visit (which she did) and I was told I have early stage pneumonia so she prescribed me some amoxicillin.
I have developed a rattle from my lungs and I am not getting any better yet… I know I need to give it 24 hours for antibiotics to kick in.
The reason for the post is because I’m worried now about relapsing with my ms. My priority is to fight this infection first, but I know that infections can trigger relapses.
Just hoping someone can provide words of encouragement or has been in a similar place?
I have remained positive about my MS diagnosis s, and have done lots to make it fit in with life, but this infection is really testing me and I am very low.
I have 2 small children (3&5) who are my world and I am determined to fight but I am pretty weak at the moment.
Sorry this is not a bright and beaming post x
