I'm freaking myself out here and am really scared.
I've been diagnosed with probable MS after two bouts of ON as well as bad headaches and vertigo and some weakness/numbness in my right side and my foot/leg going numb. Have also had many UTIs over the years.
Have some lesions and 3 o bands.
This past weekend, I started having bladder trouble. Didn't really have the urge to go, and had trouble starting. Assumed it was a UTI. Had to go to ER because eventually I coldn't go at all, where they used a catheter to relieve me and then last night I actually woke up to peeing the bed. Never had that problem. I'm on antibiotics but the sample didn't show infection. Waiting on culture.
I saw the NP at my family doctor's office this morning and they made an appt. with a urologist. A call to my neuro's office just left me with the same instructions...see a urologist.
Should I be pushing to see the neuro more? The past week I started up again with a really bad headache extreme fatigue and I've also had an area on my back that is numb and TMI, some tingling, decreased sensation in my genital area. Is this a flare? Could steroids help this? I want to be proactive and do what I can to help this bladder problem clear up and hopefully not return. I'm not on a DMD, but now I'm thinking it might be time.
