Sorry I haven’t participated in the forum since I joined although I have popped in now and again. I just felt I needed time to accept everything in my own way and to try and be positive. So for the last 2 years have been trying to come to terms with the many life changes MS has dealt me… and thought I was coping Ok? However, I seem to be falling more and more – One minute I’m upright walking fine then within seconds flat on my face! This happened twice on the half hour walk to the doctors on Monday afternoon and I was in a right mess by the time I arrived – bloodied and shaking. The nurses and the doctor were lovely – very kind and caring. They cleaned me up and after checking all my vitals ordered a taxi for me as I was too scared to walk back home. I do exercises that my physio has provided and try and keep busy but I’m now so scared of leaving the house. At what point should I consider mobility aids? I’m seeing my neuro next week – I may need to change from Tecfidera to another DMT as I am lymphopenic? My MS nurse has suggested Gilenya or Avonex but I wonder about Lemtrada – would that help me better with balance etc. Confused and miserable – sorry to be negative (I’m not usually!) and thanks for reading.
