My MS has kicked off again. I called my MS nurse this time (I usually go to my doctor and they refer me to hospital) as I want to try and keep out of hospital – its a 40 min drive and I’m struggling for people to take me.
She said that as my symptoms are the same as my last relapse I would need to be seen by a neurologist at the hospital on Wednesday. This is to decide if its a relapse or a flare up of old symptoms. I don’t understand why this difference is important. Whatever it is is making me unable to work/ leave the house etc.
Meanwhile my symptoms are getting worse, I’m feeling more unwell and anxious. I thought it was better to get steroids asap rather than waiting for it to worsen?
I really hoped I could get oral steroids from my doctor and be able to stay at home. The thought of travelling all that way and maybe having a stay in hospital isn’t feeling great at the moment as part of my MS experience is being really sensitive to everything and hospitals are the opposite of calm for me.
Anyone got any thoughts on this? I’m considering calling my doctors and asking them to request the steroid tablets from the hospital for me
Anyone have any thoughts or advice on this? I feel confused by it all again… every single time it happens haha
