Hi to everyone. I’m Gemma, I was diagnosed with MS last April. It started off with the l’hermittes (not sure if spelt right) like a electric shock running down my spine and getting pins and needles in my hands and feet. Well within 3wks I had gone from having that to not being able to walk, I had lack of concentration too which with all that goin on I had 3young children to see to. I had my MRI scan as I was taken to hospital and there I stayed for 8days. The scan confirmed I had 3 lesions on my brain and 1 on my spine. I had physio for 10wks to rebuild my strength as it seemed to have effected my left side more. I have had good and bad days since. I started taking tecfidera in November but unfortunately 22nd December I relapsed and still recovering. Ms nurse prescribed me really strong steroids which were awful but I’ve had a side affect of thrush in the mouth. Dr’s have given me nystan which doesn’t seem to be working, if anyone knows of anything else that may help would be gratefully appreciated otherwise its back to the Drs. Ms nurse have now said due to only being 8months ago since last relapse that I may need another scan and need 2nd line treatment but I have no idea what that is??? I don’t dwell on my MS and what my future holds mobility wise, I just take each day as it comes but you do take the small everyday things for granted, well I did, not no more! Would love to chat with people to see how you all deal with things. Hope to chat soon, take care, be happy
