Was diagnosed as having benign MS on 10th Oct, this is after an ephisode of variably numb legs for 6 months 6 yrs ago and similar which started in April this year along with a few other odd sensation issues - weak fingers, minor facial spasms etc. I still can't feel my feet properly, but at least everything else is back pretty much to normal and I'm fully mobile. MRI's etc were taken each time, both times showing spinal inflammation in different places - brain all clear fortunately.
It's been a great help reading your news and how everyone is so supportive of each other, so thanks for that. All of you who are battling MS have my utmost respect and sympathy.
Thing is, given that my feet are still not clearing up after 7 months, I'm really not sure that I agree with the consultant that this is going to prove benign, or how he can even know for sure. Anyone else out there had this situation who can advise?
I've not told anyone else apart from Mrs Sensible about my diagnosis and I have avoided telling work despite it having been a bit difficult at times - I'm doing this as I don't want people to stop investing time in me, though it does make it emotionally quite tough. Can anyone relate to this or am I barking mad?!
Anyway, good to 'meet' you all.
