Would very much appreciate any advice about the following:
I was originally diagnosed with RRMS back in 1999. Last year, it was reassessed as SPMS - the symptoms have now rendered me unable to work, but being fiercely independent I have not yet surrendered to the help of a carer.
The issue that causes most concern at present is severe tremor and lack of control in my right hand whenever I try to exert light pressure (…strong pressure seems to be ok so far!!) This means that writing - or even holding a pen - is no longer a realistic ability.
Coupled with speech difficulty, it makes communicating very difficult and sometimes even impossible!
Does anyone know of something that may help with the tremor, as I find this most troublesome?
The speech problems and tremor only started happening late last year (bad enough to have to give up work) after 12 years with MS.
(There are other issues, but I have been able to work around them!)
Best wishes to everyone,
