Steroids for ms numbness

Then suddenly in oct this year started getting numbness in left knee which has travelled up my leg into hip and down to foot making it almost impossible to walk. I had one course of steroids 6 tablets for 6 days 5mg tablets 2 weeks ago but it didn't do anything. I have asked to see ms nurse and she has perscribed 500mg per day of steroids for 5 days. I start tomorrow so don't know if it will help but I am willing to give it a go. The gp had no idea what to do and would have given me wrong steroids and wrong dosage. I can relate to your post, yes get some treatment, don't be passive about this......... Don't be fobbed off.....

Because the CNS (Central Nervous System) is affected, some people find that memory, word finding difficulties, attention, short-term memory, judgment, reasoning, and/or concentration are compromised. The degree of cognitive impairment reflects the extent of the disease in the brain. Fatigue, depression, and stress may make these symptoms worse (whether you have MS or not). Allowing yourself more time for tasks, writing lists, using a calendar, jotting things down immediately after hearing them, and modifying expectations can help. At present, there is no medication that can improve these symptoms.

I am 42 yrs old and about 2 months ago I startes getting pain in my neck on the left side. I just thought I slept wrong that night. Over the last 2 months the pain which I can describe as numbness and like someone is shoving needles in my arm, has traveled all the way down my arm to my hand, mainly my thumb and middle finger but sometimes I noticed lately my palm part of the hand. The worse part is the “needle poking” / pain in my upper arm. It has got worse over the last 2 months. I cant turn my head, bend my head down, etc without the pain being severe in my upper mid arm only located on the outer part of my bicep which travels downwards which leads instantly to my hand going numb. I am not one for but it is getting a little annoying and unsure if I need to see a Dr. I was tested about a yr ago for Carpel Tunnel in both hands which the Dr stated all was fine.

Steroids are mainly used for treating acute episodes of MS. Steroids help to reduce the body's autoimmune response. In doing so, steroids help to shorten the length of an attack, and rapidly reduce inflammation. Since their use is associated with significant long-term side effects, steroids are used only for short periods of time. Side effects of steroids include psychosis, bloating, insomnia (sleeping problems), headache , bone loss, suppression of the immune system, moon (rounded) face, stomach ulcers, and increases in blood sugar.

I finally had to go for a third opinion at an MS specialist. Doctors would not diagnose me even though I had many lesions in my head, spinal tap was positive, and low vitamine D which pointed to MS. I had severe muscle pains, tingling, can hardly walk, and hold things. Every possible auto immune disorder was tested and came out negative. Until my new Doctor received the reports from the spinal tap she ordered a VEP but canceled it after she received results of the tap. There are many ways to test for MS so do not give up. Go for second and third opinions if you able to. Do not give up even if the symptoms go away. My symptoms went away for 13 years and doctors thought it was just severe arthritis bakc then. Symptoms appeared again but this time with severe disabling was finally diagnosed in 2009.
