@jamie_peall , always use your MS Nurse as the first point of contact for all things MS.

It is possible that this is the result of MS activity just before or during your infusion treatment. I can imagine that undergoing Lemtrada may affect the stress levels.

The Steroids, that were part of the infusion process, should address any MS activity of this nature, so it should pass within 6 – 8 weeks.

But do get this reassurance from your MS Nurse.

Thanks i have since contacted her and she said it sounds like gastric reflux and to try some ranitidine or omeprazole as it might be related to the steroids hopfully it will help.
