RE: Neurological problems
I suggest not googling your symptoms. The internet can make you paranoid.

Oh, no, that's terrible. I'm so sorry the first doctor was wrong. I hope there are some therapies/meds available to help?

RE: Neurological problems
Damn. So sorry. Hug

It's my understanding that the symptoms fluctuate, so things may improve. Is that what the doctors told you?

RE: Neurological problems
Mathilda, my best friend has it too. She had the onset when she was in her early 20s. She was paralysed from toe to neck soon after onset. They told her she would never walk again.

One year later, she was walking. She has been walking ever since. 50 years have passed. She has some bad days, but they are far and between. Her main issue is that she drops plates and cups etc. when in the kitchen. Solution: Buying old plates and stuff at the fleamarket occasionally. That ended up turning into a collection of unusual plates.

There are some restrictions - she will still go up into the high elevations of the alps frequently - but not any higher than can be driven. She still travels to the Italian beaches - but won't go into the water by herself. And so forth.

Basically it is not affecting her life very much. When it flares up, it is short lived and not disabling, she just applies more caution.

You can do this! And you can have a beautiful, fun, exciting life.

RE: Neurological problems
Many hugs to you! My very close friend has MS and it seems very well-managed with medication. She goes every 6 months for a scan and well-check. She does seem to catch colds more easily and has to do everything she can to boost her immune system.

Best of luck as you move forward with treatment. And take it easy on yourself ((hugs))
