Hi people, need some help please. My younger sister was diagnosed a year ago, recently as PPMS. She is relatively active. Yesterday, she had her usual bath, which she was unable to lift herself out of, no energy or control etc. She had to wait for her husband to come and help her which was obviously upsetting. She had drained the bath for safety and so ended up freezing when he found her.he thought she was having a stroke as she wasn’t making sense. He called an ambulance who took her off, did bloods and a CT scan. They think she might have a chest infection as her kids have had colds. I explained about pseudo-exacerbation caused through baths, as I get this too but it hasn’t really affected her before. Today she is washed out and weepy; this is the first time she has succumbed to the real effects of MS.
Please can I ask if any of you have experienced similar to this? She is so terribly upset and I am trying to convince her that she will feel better, and can put things in place to make sure it doesn’t happen again. Thanks…… 🙁
