“Help, I think I’m having an MS relapse.”

Katie is used to occasional pins and needles in her hands – but she was frightened when it suddenly worsened. She tried contacting her medical team and neurologist, but couldn’t get through.

Thankfully, an MS Nurse answered the phone. She helped Katie understand that her symptoms were likely to be a pseudo-relapse triggered by stress and a cold. The nurse worked with Katie to make a plan for managing her symptoms until they resolved – and laid out the steps she could take if they did not.

Thanks for helping Katie find expert advice, comfort and care during a scary time.
