I have Binswanger Disease. Since it's rare, I've been through a battery of tests. There is no cure and no tx except treating the symptoms. The prognosis is not good. I could not bring myself to tell my husband until this past Saturday. He knew I had a neuro problem, that there is not cure and only tx symptoms, but he did not know that it will shorten my lifespan. We've been through our house being severely damaged by Katrina, our only g'daughter diagnosed w/leukemia, me being out of work for almost a year due to this and our son is going off to college this summer. I do not want my son to know at this point. I've had a stent placed in the right coronary artery which has tremendously helped w/heart arrythmias (not nearly as many). I'm on 3 BP meds, but still BP goes up & down for no reason. I experience TIAs on a weekly basis (used to be daily). I eat nutrious meals, weigh what I'm suppose to weigh, etc ... looking at me I look in perfect health. I never know what each day holds ... some days are as "normal" for me as normal can get. My left side is weak (left arm seems to be getting stronger ... I use a 6 lb weight), but left side is constantly numb and doesn't work like the right leg. I've practiced for months, gave away all shoes w/heels, and have developed a walk that unless you stare at my feet, you'll never know. It's affected my cognitive thinking, gait, balance, etc... in other words, it stinks! Just hoping to find someone out there who knows what I go through & wants to talk. Thanks for listening!
