1 year since diagnosis, living in Malawi, Africa

27 years old, diagnosed with CRPS (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome) in 2012 after what was initially a minor sprain in my left ankle whilst playing squash in December 2011, spread to the left leg in late 2013, and the whole left side late last year. Went for a DNA test a month or so after the spread and the MS was detected.
Parents naturally trying to keep it as hushed up as possible with very few family members knowing about it.
Have asked a fair amount of doctors here if they know anyone with MS here in Malawi with whom they could link me up to be able to chat with at least someone who could relate to having MS, but yhea, nobody found so far.
Most recent physiotherapist I visited today suggested I check this website and forum out for support, so yhea, here I am :slight_smile:

Apologies for the long one :grimacing:

Welcome and best wishes
