Hi everyone, I joined yesterday so i’m just saying hi. I was diagnosed with P P MS in 2007 after a mri scan and lumber puncher. I first realized something was not quite right about 15 years ago when i found i couldn’t wiggle my toes on my right foot as well as i could on my left. I finally went to the doctor in 2007 when i was walking with a limp all the time.
At present i’ve lost the use of my right hand and arm and my right leg is very bad. Funny thing is it only affects my right hand side, my left side is fine.
I’ve been watching this site for years but finally decided to join after getting the dreaded letter from the DWP about being transferred from IB to ESA. I’ve joined benefits and work and I’ve got my MS nurse coming round to help me but it still looks very frightening. I think over the next few mouths i’m going to need all the support i can get.
