As I was walking to the front door I felt it happen. A large section of my left back trunk (and as of today) butt and front trunk became numb. I can move fine but it's numb.
Thank God I can move right now, so much to do...
There are claims to file but first we must open everything.... Valuables were broken, lost or destroyed in the move but we covered our butt with replacement value insurance. It covers their damages as well. 1200 pounds of stuff is missing. I am missing one of Nicole's tapestry throws, made from her own art.
It is distressing.
Back to the numb areas. How can it be "numb" if it hurts???
I don't know if this is a "relapse". Or if I should call my neurologist (who will tell me quite firmly I need to go on steroids) and let him know. I mean, why pick a fight when you can avoid one. =)
I've heard about the nasty stuff that happens "underneath the hood" with MS. MS continues its destructive march whether or not you can see it. Now I am unsure of myself on stairs - not going up but going down and it's a longgggg ways to the floor. Especially in this house. I've always been unsure of stairs going down but now I'm really unsure. And slow...
Is sudden numbness a relapse or part of "everyday" MS?
Helllpppp...I don't know so I'm asking you.
I am not on any CRAB drugs due to side effects - sometimes a scary thought, sometimes not. It will be interesting to see if the kidney doctor thinks my decreased kidney functioning is due to CRAB drugs or if it's something else.
