I was diagnosed RRMS 18 months ago , (am a 51 yr old grammy) and have not had a serious relapse in that time. Mainly numbness, facial pain, etc. I am very fortunate in that regard. (I was diagnosed from an mri that showed the lesions and also from a spinal tap.) However I am now in day two of what my might be my first serious exacerbation. I am posting this to see if anyone else has had this experience. It began with intense pain in my right hip, it has spread to my right butt cheek and the right side of my abdomen 24 hours ago. I now have numbness in those areas. Not just tingling but "its not there" numbness and seems to be spreading. There is still deep pain. My GP, who is stumped, is consulting with my neurologist this afternoon. Neuro is in another town, I live in a rural area.) I will see my GP first thing in the morning. I am very frightened. I am new to this website but I have noticed that there is a wide array of ms experience checking in and commenting. Also, that there is a lot of great discussion and information sharing and a lot of kindness and compassion. This is a great website and I am going to a lot of the links I learn about on here. I am just posting this to see if anyone else has been here, if they have experienced this as a relapse and can give me some thoughts on what to expect. I have been on rebif for 6 months. Had to go off three weeks ago because I developed hives. But am now back on. I know this is rambling, sorry. I would appreciate any thoughts.
