Hey, ive not posted on here for a few years, only really used this site when I was initially diagnosed back in 2016.
However its lockdown, im bored and i saw a few posts on reddit recently about people fighting battles everyday with auto immune diseases that are invisible. What I noticed is that you rarely hear about anyone with an autoimmune disease that is fine.
Well im here to say that is me. I am absolutely fine, and probably fitter than I've ever been in my life (32m).I've had lemtrada treatment and no issues for 4 years. So for anyone who might be recently diagnosed i hope this helps to see. I know I must be incredibly lucky with how ive responded to treatment. When i was diagnosed i had foot drop, went deaf in one ear, couldnt take in any information properly/quickly, arm weakness. But all that went not long after steroids.
No problems MS wise, treatment works. Dont get me wrong, im goin bat shit crazy thanks to Covid lockdowns but who isn't? :p I hope this can bring some positivity to someone who might perhaps be going through a much harder time with recent diagnosis or just to anyone else who could be arsed reading this :)
(I made a new profile as a noticed my last profile had my full name in profile name that I didn't want showing permanently, so sorry if seeing this twice)
