Just a question really. I am currently at the age of 38 suffering from foot drop, and various numb patches around my hands face and back. I've recently had IV pred with very little effect. Currently on oral pred, plus a number of other drugs.
I've seen the rheumatologist weekly for the past 3 weeks most recently on Monday where we discussed the pros if being admitted and monitored and reviewed by neurology correctly. However the neurologist on this week is not the first choice clinician (we both have reservations) so decided that admission could wait, putting a brave face on it all I agreed. The parting comment was "gets any worse call me" now here is the question. I can not say it has got any worse however I can say that my tolerance is at rock bottom with it, I'm tired and really can not face another day of struggling today. Do I call or do I try and ride it out until next week Friday when I see a creditable nice neuro bod in clinic.
I am a nurse and appreciate the pressures on our beds at work which accompanied with the current neuro dr has influenced my reluctance to go down the inpatient pathway.
