Have felt better until today

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi all i havent posted on here for a little while,basically ive been 90% my normal self probably due to finally getting the right medication, i take diazepam,beta blockers and mirtazapine which helps me sleep and has helped me relax and worry less about my numb/tingly symptoms however yesterday my mood was quite low and i was concentrating more than usual over my tingling,anyway today i feel like im nearly back to square one-im ashamed to admit that i wet the bed twice last night! Im hoping it happened cos i was in such a deep sleep ,when it happened i was dreaming about being on the toilet! So of course today im now panicking again that i have ms as i think this can be a symptom of ms,all my tingly/numb hand and face and feet is back ,advice anyone please

    Hi Sarah

    This is recovery phase. Ups and downs are common. Don't be harsh on yourself.

    I was also doing well but have been anxiety struck for a month or so. Trying to cope up somehow.

    Each day is different. The day you felt yesterday was different. The feeling you have today is new. And the way you gonna feel tomorrow will be entirely afresh.

    Keep believing in yourself.

    Your getting yourself all jazzed up again. Time for a med check. If your doc thought it might be MS, don't you think they would send you for an MRI. I start to pee and it wakes me up. I also drink tons of coffee. One of my vices. We all have them. So what. Stop making a big deal of it. Throw a towel down and go back to sleep. The more you freak about it, the more anxious you will become. Call you doc right away.

      Hey Sarah,I am thinking about your anxiety over your numbness and tingling, that maybe you could get something to calm you down while your waiting for doc/ neuro appt. I hope it's not MS. I just feel that your really stressing out, and it will make you a mess, before your get to appt. Best of luck!!!!
