Newly Diagnosed

Hi everyone! My name is Lauren, I was diagnosed with RRMS 3 months ago. My first symptom was numbness in my feet; and within a few weeks I was paralyzed from the neck down. The nerve pain was so extreme I couldn’t be touched. My body wasn’t responding to prednisone or plasmaforesis—-so I’m currently going thru chemotherapy, specifically Cytoxan. I’ve regained about 70% mobility in my arms & legs, and now i’m just taking it one day at a time. I’m happy to be here with other people living with & affected by MS
