Oh dear Anna :( :hug:

I think it's important for you to be seen by a doctor, especially with the constellation of symptoms you have woken up with. Can you get in to see your GP? I know you had a bad experience just recently but this is when they need to see you so they know there is a problem and they can't ignore it then!

love

:( That's the trouble when you have a decent GP :( I can usually get in on an emergency appt now he knows how unpredictable my disease is, which makes life a bit easier.

Is your right arm still numb? If so then I would class that as an emergency.

Since your symptoms are escalating I would call your doctor and explain to the nurse what is happening. These symptoms each on their own I would say you could wait, but in combination it is a different story. If it was me I would be in the ER or sitting on the doctor's doorstep in the morning.

Take care,
