My name is karen. I was born in England. I will be 43, this year. I had three older siblings. All of them were born three years apart… Five years later I was born.
Back in 2002-03, my second oldest sister started having symptoms. It took along time for her diagnosis. By 2020, and my sister can do nothing but put her finger to her face, and talk.
February 2019 my brother died by suicide. We found out later, he refused meds for depression.
April/March 2020 my oldest sister was under alot of stress about her job. Went to Emerg with chest pains, was treated and sent home. Next morning woke up and her legs didn’t work! 2 months, many many tests later. She was told she has M.S. her legs are still not working or her left arm.
And then there’s me!!
I was told right before Covid-19 hit Canada, to find out if I could start tests for early signs??
I am beyond scared!!
I have no balance issues, not dropping things or knocking things over. No drop foot, walking issues.
I get headaches and migraines, as does my second oldest sister. We always have.
My Dad has restless leg syndrome.
Sometimes when I lay in bed, I can feel it, almost like a unbearable itch. Then it goes down my body to my legs or arms.
I live in a very small town in Ontario, that has had a Doctor shortage for more then 15 years.
Sorry for the long post. Any information would be great. Thanks, 1 of 3 sisters
