I think something is really wrong

Hello everyone, I haven't been here in a long time. I hope everyone is doing well.

On and off for the past 2 years I've had problems. I've had 2 really bad exacerbations where I go numb on the right side of my face and really bad fatigue; fatigue I've never experienced before. I have been able to work through most of it but I think I've hit my wall.

My stomach hurts all the time. I was in hospital not long ago and they did a endoscope and said that my stomach was irritated and was having spasms. I am now to the point the I cannot stand up straight. If I do there is a *horrible* pain in my back and lower stomach/abdomen. I have done nothing to injure my back, but it hurts like crazy. I have not had a normal poo in months but the dr has me on Miralax everyday but I still feel like something is in there. My stomach is not tender when you press on it but if I try to lean back there is pain in my hips, stomach, back and sides. I have no idea what is going on. I've been out of work for 4 days now and I don't even know which dr to call. I can't stand up straight at all. I don't know what to do.

Hi and welcome back.

I think you need to go to the ER. Something is very wrong and you have to get the doctors to listen.

We have had several members here lately with similar issues, which we don't yet know are MS-related. But worry about that part later. For now, Go!

Sending healing wishes,

Hi there,

Long time, no see. I'm so sorry it's under these circumstances. I'm sure you don't want to go back to the ER, but I strongly agree with Alex, and Essy - the point you are at really sounds like you need urgent care, and not run of the mill MD and trial and error for resolution.

If your MD is the type that would send you, and ask the hospital to admit you, and find the cause asap, then call your MD. If not, I recommend going directly there.

I'm sure this is the last thing you want to hear from us - how I wish we could provide you with the solution in responses but know we can't.

Like Ess say, "For now, GO!
