I’ve had a whirlwind of a time over the past 12 months. It started off with sever dizziness that was put down to vertigo. I went to an ENT specialist who did an MRI. They found leisions on my brain and reffered me to a neurologist. The neurologist took a bit of a history from me and said I have rapidly evolving sever ms. He said it was something to do with the number of relapses I’d had in a 2 year period. It was quite a few. Somewhere in the region of 12. Turns out most of the health problems I’ve had for the past 10 years were MS related. No one put two and two together. I was told in that diagnosis appointment that I could go for lemtrada or tysabri. I chose lemtrada. It was quick. I was diagnosed in September and was supposed to have treatment in November. I had an infection so they couldn’t do it, so it was put off. I then eventually had the treatment in December. I haven’t really had an improvement in my symptoms but I’m glad to know it shouldn’t get any worse. Yes my life has changed. But, the way it changes is up to me. I use a wheel chair to get about but that’s cos it’s quiker and less tiering and actually gives me more independence. The dizziness is still there too. I also have emotional and anxiety issues, to the point where I was having panic attacks most of the time just for the fun of it even though I knew the reasons were stupid. But live goes on. Most of the meds I’m on now keep the anxiety under control. The pain meds are still being tweeked so hopefully a balance will be found soon. I started my own blog that I use as an online diary and write about whatever I feel like. If anyone wants to have a look feel free. http://www.humbugdance.com have a look and leave a comment, that’s if you want to. Anyway hope everyone is good.
