I had a bout of this a year ago when I was first diagnosed, and hoped that would be it. A few days ago my left foot went numb, then my leg... the next day my right leg went numb, now I'm pretty much numb and tingly from the waist down.
I'm scared I will wake up and not be able to walk. I called the nurse at my MS clinic, she said call back if I can't walk and we'll do the steroids, unless that happens they are just too toxic and are a last resort. She said the first line of defense is rest, which I am, but it gives me lots of time to worry.... argh. This combined with the dizziness and spasticity aren't making me feel very good about my prognosis at all. I'm hoping for an MRI to see what the Betaseron is doing, if anything.
sorry to be a bummer
