Hello, I’m new to the group and was recently diagnosed. I have to have a spinal tap next week and I am pretty nervous. I must admit, I’m scared. I guess I’ve known that I could possibly have MS for about seven years. I ignored the symptoms and never went through with the tests. Within the last year the symptoms have become worse and I’m following through. I’ve had two MRI’s done and it was in those MRI”s my neuro discovered the MS. The spinal tap will tell what my progression level is. I am a very active person but I have found it more difficult to work out. My vision becomes blurry and my legs are in so much pain. My worst times are when I have the “MS Hug” and when I can’t feel my feet. I stumble so much and just the thought of having to give up my heels depresses me. Is there any advice for a person newly diagnosed.
