It’s funny how shit happens.
I had the numb face, numb hands for starters.
Looking back, I had several symptoms, but my doctor didn’t look for ms straight away. Why would he? It didn’t help I was at uni at the time either. Heavy legs, making blinding errors at football… All dismissive at the time.
Even after a weekend of…wrestling, it was off to the std clinic after it all went numb down south. (That was fun with a female doctor and a look of ‘students!’, though I was quietly - yes!!!)
Back home and working (not McDonalds (uni joke)), I lost my eyes, went all shakey like a hand held camera. Aimed for the gap between the car and the side of the road. Not fun. Decided then to investigate. Steroids cleared it up in about a fortnight, but then the tests started as 2 and 2 were put together…(Fell asleep during my MRI ???)
Dx took ages to confirm, (turned green and almost threw up as neuro explained the results to my mum) and then it was the start of the fun ride.
Wish it had been as fun as SS ! But it wasn’t !!
My path has been reasonably stone free. For that I am thankful.
Take care y’all. Andy
