Help….

Hey everyone, was wondering if people could help me out.
Ever since thursday ive been having horrendous pain in my legs and chest, and shoulders. its like an aching! As the weekend has gone on its getting worse and gone round to my back and I feel like I can barely move. Ive taken some pain relief but have just thrown it back up. Has anyone got any advice on what i can do to make myself feel slighty better?
I just feel rubbish and want to feel better ๐Ÿ˜ญ

@asht1994 , the pains around your chest and shoulders could be down to a symptom inappropriately called “the MS Hug”, https://www.mstrust.org.uk/a-z/ms-hug .

As the Hug is caused by muscles going into spasm, I am wondering whether your legs may be going into spasm as well.

Give your MS Nurse a call to discuss.

Totally agree with Stumbler, you need to call your ms nurse. You say you have rr so one assumes you’ve had a relapse in the past. It’s only been a year since you were diagnosed and it’s difficult to say what’s happening. I’m one of the old codgers, have had the beast for 25 years, relapse 2/3 times a year but mine always follow the same pattern. I know when I’m relapsing but convincing the junior doctors in A&E (who are usually younger than the number of years I’ve had ms, so convincing them that I know slightly more than them about ms than they do! You will learn over time the difference between a bad couple of days when you need a ‘duvet’ day and a relapse. The ms nurse will have all the info you need on which drugs are available to help your symptoms so keep your chin up๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’Š๐Ÿคž

I have rang my ms nurse but the woman that answers the phone is on holiday so they have said if I leave a voicemail they wonโ€™t get back to me for at least 2 weeks so Iโ€™ve emailed one of them โ˜บ๏ธ Took yesterday off work and feel a little better today so maybe another day off to make myself better is the way forward

@asht1994 , that’s the spirit. Put yourself first and take care of yourself. ๐Ÿ˜‰
