Hi there,

So the last time I went to see my consultant was in July last year, since then I've been told repeatedly that there is a backlog and they can't see me. So yeah today I've been seen again and the consultant has agreed to support my condition and put me on hydroxychloroqine.

I am being referred for an urgent Mri to get to the bottom of why my left leg has been numb since the beginning of February.

It may not seem much to the outside world but I'm sure to us it's finally the start of some support

Thank you muchly, I'll keep the progress updated after the mri

Update. My consultant has called me and said he's got me in as a priority this morning with neurology. Eeek. On my way there now

I'm so pleased, this has been a long time coming. Let us know how you get on.

Have you had any Robles with cold in other areas this harmed to me and it was a problem with your arteries iI have been diagnosed with blocked arteries and owns the reason for feeling cold?

I have been prescribed hydrochloroquinine and it's now been reduced but it stopped my night sweats

Good luck with your cold feeling

Best wishes


Well on Friday last week I had the urgent neurology appointment. I was told I'd be having the mri that morning but it didn't turn out that way. The doctor was testing my reflexes and muscle strength, he was pretty concerned about this problem and wants to rule out ms. I'm now booked in for an mri this Saturday, they did say they'll be injecting dye into me. No idea what that's for.

To say I've been in a mood is an understatement, not sure how I'll cope if they say it's ms.
