Hi there Anne. I’m a 48 year old male. Diagnosed 4 years ago after I kept falling over & couldn’t get up. Then told I’d had it for 10+ years. Soon as I started listening to the so called experts, I declined at a very rapid rate.
As you’re probably already aware, your own nervous system has started attacking itself, so stay calm & keep doing things as normal as possible & improve your overall health. The weak immune system, from beating itself up, can open the door for other problems. A common cold can be bad & give you a good hiding.
Like you stated, there is no cure. So be very wary of all these things they throw at us.
You’ll be advised you are depressed & all sorts. It’s not reality! You’ll feel concerned & that could cause problems in itself. Just brush it under the carpet & learn what works for you.
I take photos with my phone as memories to save & store. The cloudy fog can make us forgetful & then they’ll perhaps offer Dementia pills.
I’d avoid all kinds until you’ve done the homework. Nothing offered is 100% & it could make things worse.
Heat is my main cause of problems & a lack of folks with common sense or morals. Be aware & find people who genuinely care. On a hot day, your legs could feel like led & you’ll be on a merry go round. The misfiring system will be having a field day. It can be calmed down by a glass of cold water & relaxing.
I attend a group of people with MS & everyone is at different stages. Your unique problems, will show the situation out eventually, so take advice with a pinch of salt. You’ll find your way & folks on this forum will give their advice.
All my best wishes out there.
