I’m a 25 year old with type 1 diabetes and relapse-remitting MS. I was diagnosed with MS March 2014 and it hit me quite hard, I will have been on Tysabri IV infusions for a year come June because the neuro considered my MS to be quite active.
I experience double vision when I’m warm/stressed, I have nystagmus, fatigue, pain sensitivity and balance issues. I seem to be okay when I am sitting down but if I take a trip into town I end up feeling awful. The combination of people and walking leads me to feel dizzy and exhausted. I have a wheelchair but struggle to self-propel, the pavements are awful and I live in a hilly area so I often have to get out of my wheelchair and walk anyway.
I would love to get a car and ideally move somewhere a little easier to navigate but this isn’t an option right now. Any ideas on what could make life feel a bit easier? I end up feeling so trapped and regret going outside the house every time I do.
Thanks in advance
