Should I call 111?

Hello everyone,

I’ll keep it short because this is hurting my eyes.

I picked up a flu bug on Wednesday, standard flu symptoms only. However from Thursday onwards it’s got worse. I lost all the sight in my left eye briefly, my vision is now slightly milky. My left eye is sore to the touch.

I’m also getting terrible shooting pains in various parts of my legs and increased numbness from my waist down.

I’m awake these sort of bugs can make your symptoms worse (I’ve got NMO, not MS – latest diagnosis…!) but I’m not sure what the best thing is to do. I don’t want to waist anyone’s time.

I would appreciate your advice.

Many thanks
