I name is Heather, and I’m very new to MS. A quick version of my story is I woke up one day in July and couldn’t walk I had numb hands numb feet no strength in my legs just a total mess ended up in the hospital for five days. So that’s where this all starts but here we are 4 1/2 months later and I still don’t have a confirmed diagnosis. I have another appointment on December 16 but in the meantime my neurologist seems to be fairly confident that it’s a MS. He’s basing that off of the onset of my symptoms my initial MRI, I’m waiting for another next week. Just had lumbar puncture done so he’ll review those results with me and I’m waiting on the vision test. In hindsight, I definitely had other symptoms going on for probably close to two years that I just chalked up to stress and anxiety. Things like dizziness being off-balance tingling in my finger tips tingling in my toes so long story short is me ignoring things obviously didn’t make them get any better. Where I’m at right now is while we’re waiting to To confirm diagnosis he had me do a round of IV steroids. I finished the last infusion last Wednesday I really haven’t noticed any change sense. Can anyone tell me if I should expect to see a change anytime soon or not at all I’m just really confused. Thank you in advance for any help
