I am quite new to MS. I have had it just about 4 years now. I have only been very mildly affected. I have numbness in my feet. I have chronic vertigo and balance issues. I have had optic neuritis. I have spasticity in my left leg. I have some fatigue. I still work full time. There are things I can't do or do well but for the most part I am pretty unlimited. I am lucky so far.
MS typically hits men much harder than women. I am sorry he is having such a hard time. Does he see an MS specialist? My doctor will do cognitive testing and has strategies and therapies to help with that sort of thing. It seems like your husband could beneifit from that. You may want to ask for that at the next appointment.......or better yet, call now about that sort of thing. Let me know!
