Recent relapse

Hi all,

I am currently going through a relapse and my legs and feet have gone numb. It began about 4 weeks ago I started to get sharp stabbing pains in the sole of my right foot, then that moved to my left foot. I contacted my GP and they said it sounded like Plantar fasciitis. Following this a couple of weeks later, i woke up with a burning sensation in both my legs. My feet and thigh were also numb. This gradually worsened as the weeks went by until the numbness got so bad I was unable to walk. I visited my neurologist who ordered an MRI and prescribed steroids. A couple weeks has passed and the feeling is slowly coming back but hasn’t fully returned. Has anyone else experienced similar symptoms before?

@missbee , similar symptoms, yes. Although, we’re all different, with damage in varying parts of our Central Nervous System (CNS), affecting all of us slightly differently. No two are the same.

The Steroids from a couple of weeks ago are still working with your body, and will be for the next 4-6 weeks. Their primary job is to address the area of inflammation behind your relapse. So, rest up and let the Steroids do their work to complete your recovery.
