    I was doing ok on and off,I got Covid in June and spent two weeks in hospital,oxygen was low,I’m recovering my worst experience was that it spiked up every ms symptom and things I never experienced,when I spoke to my ms nurse she couldn’t give me any answers if I had a relapse or if it’s the Covid,so didn’t have any one to talk to,I wasn’t in control of anything that was going on,it’s still hard for me now.

    Hi @shall - I'm so sorry you had Covid-19 on top of everything else. That must have been horrible, but thankfully you're recovering. I can appreciate the lack of control you felt. Personally I feel that I can cope with the level of pain I have (both neurological & rheumatological), but anything on top of 'my usual' is so very difficult.....& I haven't had Covid. As we don't know everything that happens if you get Covid, it's perhaps understandable that your MS nurse didn't have answers, but must be so difficult for you.
    Sending you a gentle hug, & hoping you feel much better soon.

    Welcome to the community from me too @shall :) 

    Gosh, it must have been difficult to be that ill from coronavirus. I'm glad that you recovered, but am sorry to hear that you may be experiencing some longer term effects. Do you have all the support you need in place to help you deal with this flare up?
