I’d just like to share my experiences of MS to date because I searched for a case like mine not longer after being diagnosed, two and a half years ago and didn’t find much. I need to share that I am ok, pretty functional and mostly normal. I realise that I may not always be this healthy but at the moment I’m fine! Two and a half years ago I had a terrible relapse; my eye turned right in causing double vision, I had horrible vertigo making everything move around me, server headaches and nausea, I could hardly walk and struggled to feed myself. This lasted for three months and felt like a life time. Symptoms took about 8 months to completely clear and steroids really helped to clear things! I didn’t believe in them and put off taking them, but they really work! If it ever happens again I’ll be straight on them.
Since all of that I’ve been mostly normal. I work full time, I walk my massive dog, I even did go ape (climbing trees), I drink at the weekends and I’ve been to Cambodia (all over) and turkey twice, soon hoping to go to Oman. I hope all this helps some others who, like me, got diagnosed and thought it was all over. It’s not xxxx
