Advice please!

Hi all!- I am looking for a little bit of advice, if you wouldn’t mind helping a gal out! The last two nights when I get into bed I get excruciating pain in my left leg from the knee up and I am unable to feel the rest of my leg, the next day (including today), I have a dull ache and my leg is definitely weaker. I am also fighting off a sinus infection so my energy levels as it are completely shot! As I am relatively new to the MS game, would this be deemed a flare up and should I contact my MS nurse? Thanks in advance 🙂

@melissa_larkin , our compromised immune systems do not deal with infections very well. This can cause a “pseudo-exacerbation”.

This is a temporary worsening of your MS symptoms, until the underlying infection is resolved.

@stumbler- thanks for that info! I have the GP next Monday and I will be getting meds if my sinus is still being a pain (an additional pain!)
