Just yesterday I felt it worsen and now feel a degree of spasticity in my right leg. I have had no luck so far getting seen by anyone at the hospital (I rang the MS nurse 2 weeks ago but no appointment has come through). I've been "out of the loop" for so long and am a bit scared! Any advice please?
Hi are you in the UK? I once had your problem, I had very few symptoms for over 10 years and then when I started to get more eg nerve pain, spasticity in right leg and arm I too was out of the 'loop'. I saw my GP and I got an appointment with my neurologist, who I hadn't seen since I was diagnosed. That was in 2007 and now I have regular appointments and see my MS nurse who has been very supportive. I found my GP very helpful and he helped me get seen quickly. Hope you sort this out soon. x
