Hi my name is laith, i’m 25 years old, male.i’ve been experience numbness in legs when doing cardiovascular excercises for almost 2 years.just during cadio excercise and last 2 hours after it .lately i’m experience numbness when i walk 5 minutes and when i bend my neck i get a shock in my legs. I went to the doctor 2 weeks before. Did mri and the result was many lesions in the brain. I return to the doctor he said its multiple sclerosis but i have to do lumbar puncture and stay in hospital for 4 days to do treatment with steroids. After it i go out an return the lumbar test for the complete diagnose and after it we disscuss treatment . I have many questions :
1- will the symptoms improve ? Cause its annoying to get numb after 5 min walk
2-do the treatments work ? Cause the doctor said he will stop and i will continue a normal life but while i’m researching online i didn’t find that is correct.
3-i have current symptoms which are: i have a finger keep moving ‘from 2 days’, headache for a month and foggy vision but it lasts for 10 seconds and it happen always.
4-i didn’t experience any attacks but my symptoms gradually worsen for the past 2 years before diagnose especially the these 5-months. Is it a sign that i have a progressive form ?
I’m new to this forum. Hope you can help me. I’m from lebanon on my last year in civil engineering.
