So I am facing’the big reveal’. Not something that I particularly want to know but it looks like I am going to find out whether I want to or not.
I was initially diagnosed with Relapsing Remitting Multiple Sclerosis (RRMS) and a dose of IV steroids can be used to help some relapses and speed up your recovery.
For the last 2 weeks I have been having real problems with my left leg which refuses to straighten and often bends up so much that my left foot is higher than my right knee! It’s also really problematic when you need to transfer or go to the toilet because if you think that moving around on very weak legs is difficult, try moving around on only 1 of them! I have done more pivots than a classically trained ballet dancer in the last couple of weeks.
Anyway, I’m now awaiting going into the relapse clinic and hopefully getting a dose of IV steroids. Then we’ll see whether or not they have any effect and then I might have some unwanted answers to whether my condition is still relapsing remitting or has moved to progressive…
