Just wanted to introduce myself. I was dx rrms when I was 22yrs old in 1992. I was married and had 2 little girls at the time. I was horrified. There was no meds for MS at that time, so I just went on with life as normal as possible.
I had another baby a year later and the only thing MS related that happend was I couldnt move my legs after for a few days and then all was normal again. It was like that mostly for the past 20 yrs. Little flares with nothing much to talk about. But that all changed this past October when I had a HUGE flare. Litterally knocked me off my feet. Couldnt walk, blurred vision, slurring speech, falling down. It was horrible.
Had my first dose of solumedrol, ever! I then turned around and had another huge flare in December. Another round of solumedrol and doc suggested I start a dmd. So, copaxone it was. Ive been on that for 2 months now, and hating it. I have permanent disability in my legs and right sided weakness.
I have experienced that horrible MS hug, and now have constant spasms in my legs. I use a walker and cane, and have to use those lovely store motor carts to go shopping, but hey, at least I can still go shopping! I cant work anymore, and that I really dont miss, but I sure do miss driving. Cant do that anymore either. But thats ok, I had been in 2 accidents because of my cog fog, which I didnt realize I had yet. Well, thanks for listening, and I hope I didnt bore anyone
