Things you need to know about MS, whether you have the progressive type or the remitting, this comes from a neurologist
I went years before i found out that I had MS. at first they thought i had sympathetic nerve dystrophy in my foot, I spend loads of money on PT and alternative medicine. It wasn’t until 6 years later that i was sent to a neurologist that i finally found out i had MS. It was a relief to finally find out what the heck was going on with my body.
I had balance problems, my foot dropped causing me to twist my ankle and wrench my upper leg muscles more than a few times. I found out that i had progressive MS, the kind that can keep steadily worsening. My right leg is partially paralyzed, i walk with a walker and sometimes need to use a wheelchair. I have severe back pain, which i can now get relief from massage. During the summer, i have to make sure i don’t get too warm, as people with MS don’t process heat correctly and it can cause me to get vertigo.
The fatigue that comes with MS is a constant companion. I have to ration out my energy so i don’t hit a wall and run out of energy. But its bearable, all of it, i still have a quality of life i have always longed for. I became a writer and published three books in a paperback book called “The Eve Chronicles”.
