I am currently in my early 20’s and undiagnosed but my symptoms look to be indicative of PPMS. I’m terrified that I’m going to be bedridden, not be able to eat or talk etc. I can deal with not being able to walk (though I know it’ll be awful to go through it) but the rest I just can’t deal with. I accidentally stumbled upon a carers post on here and saw many people talking about caring for their parents, a lot of them had been diagnosed at early ages (18-24) and all of them were in a horrible condition. It seems like the earlier you get this disease the worse you will end up. I am terrified of this being me and have even considered taking my life so I don’t have to.
could anyone tell me if it’s generally worse for those who are diagnosed with PPMS early on?
