I am 43 yrs old with multiple sclersis. My uncle was diagnosed in the 70's, my ex husband was diagnosed in 88 (my oldest daughter's father), I was diagnosed in late 89, my uncle's daughter was diagnosed in 96, and my oldest daughter 24 yrs old was was diagnosed in Feb of 08. Have you ever heard of so many people in one family with MS. Even though my ex is not a family member.
I have tried all the A, B, C med's for MS but betaseron worked best for me. Still have sight problems that swell, turn red and has heat from the sight. I take 2000 mg of sol-u-medrol a month over 2 days in my port-a-cath. I also take Efferor, Premanon, lots of vitamins. Woman's one a day, fiber, B-6, B-12, C, D.
My hands have been numb for six years and the dr says they're not coming back. I've always had problems with my left eye. Actually my left side is very weak. Pain is one of my worst symptons. I hurt every day of my life. Some days are worse than others but I still have pain everyday. I've even tried smoking marijuana and it did help but its against the law and my Dr. didn't like it so i stopped. I fall a good bit but my best friend helps me a lot. She's the BEST! (loudog)
My daughter has an MRI tomorrow. The dr says it could be a brain infection. She has a little girl that turns 3 next week. She has cried all afternoon and is not saying too much to anyone. I'm worried and scared. I told her God wouldn't put more on her than she can take. I no you are not suppose to question God's work but I sometimes question his intentions.
My youngest daughter is 20 and her legs are giving away on her during softball at college and I'm worried about her. Should I have her tested for MS. Her legs hurt her too. She's a very athelic girl. What should I do?
trying to cope!
