I believe I'm having a relapse

My main symptoms from the start have been numbness from my upper abdomen through my legs, and the MS hug. I had 5 days of IV steroids at the end of February that gradually took most all of my numbness away. The only place it persisted is across my abdomen.
But the last 2 days, I’ve gotten numbness in both my thighs, and more intense numbness in abdominal area. So far, no hug. I’m not sure what you’d call this, but the past couple days have been high stress, one daughter going on an amusement park field trip with her friends and having her at the school at 5:45 am to get the bus, that was Friday. Thursday my older daughter fell and rewounded her right knee and is in a cast and crutches while we are waiting for an MRI appointment, on top of 4 of us being now a one car family since my car finally died!!
It’s been an interesting week! 😂

Oh yes, I forgot to mention, my daughter injured her knee the day before her 17th Birthday! 😔

@laurianne25 , when existing symptoms start flaring up like this, I suggest that it’s your MS “grumbling”, i.e. it’s not happy with somethings that’s presently going on.

In this case, it’s your stress-ometer going off the scale and possibly being a bit over-tired.

So, try and get things back to normal and things should start to settle down again. If not, let your neuro know.

@stumbler, thank you I will. I go for a 2nd opinion at an MS Clinic on Wednesday at my Neurologist request. Because of such, I believe he’s kind of dropped me from his service, not responding to my questions at all. But I will discuss all this with my 2nd Neurologist Wednesday.
