hi all,first time on the forum as it seems to have taken me a bit of time to know how to put it all into words?
the clinical stuff im ok with; diagnosed in june this year a week before my 50th borthday!! i have had only what i think are mild symptons. starting in 2008 with a numb leg which i was told was b12 def,so since then i had the regular injections which sorted that.then last year i had carpal tunnel symptons which also went within a couple of weeks.then tiny numb patch on my face,then very peculiar numb,hot sensation all around my stomach and hip. all of these cleared quickly.any way this lead my doctor to refer me for neuro appointment,then mri,then the bad news. i have 2 brain lesions and 1 on upper spine.
neuro has told me its benign ms ? and to go away,check this site out. read up about DMD and he will see me in 3 months.
SO…here iam. it was horrible telling my family and friends as i felt like the grim reaper. i am a really up beat person and being really positive but this last week i really feel rubbish. beyond tired and a bit alone with all this,even though i have great family and friends i reall do. i feel like i am just containing all this and not doing what i think i should. i think reading this forum has really helped these last few weeks but i feel so nervous to do this post-maybe it is admiitting something to myself? i have so many questions in my head.
i hope i have done this post right as i am bit of techno phobe x
