thanks folks for all your advice, it does help and i appreciate all your wisdom, i have had mild to moderate symptoms of MS for 15-20 years and was in total denial of MS as i have a sister with MS. then out of the blue it hit me like a sledge hammer and an jumbo jet in November 2014.
i was admitted to hospital (where i worked may i add) and was diagnosed with RRMS. everyone that knew me could not believe it had happened to me, as i was the one who climbed the stairs 2 at a time, and had the job half done before anyone had started. always on the go and happy at my work.
i have accepted i have MS, i knew when i was waiting for the results from the lumber spine to come in and all other tests were negative, i knew it had to be MS, but how severe?.
what i cant understand is they have told me its RRMS when the f@#K does it go into remission. one year of RRMS, transverse myelitis, drop foot, numbness from the bust down to my feet, fatigue with capital F, issues with balance, bowels, bladder, eyes, throat, thinking, remembering, sleeping, and talking, and a whole host of other beauties to long to mention.
am still laughing because thats my nature, but i just feel thats its got to have progressed further than RRMS, because if i went undiagnosed for 15-20 with MS could it not be possible that these symptoms are now secondary or progressive. these answers i will not know until i see the neurologist in May 2016.
RIGHT FOLKs get your thinking caps on, how long should your symptoms last, i was told by the MS “that if my symptoms have lasted this long, ( one year) they will not go away” . How long ???
