I read from someone a few days ago that was interesting to me. I would be interested in exploring it. The comment was something like..'MS tends to go to the spine for most but my MS has stayed in my brain and I am fairly significantly cognitively affected'.....
Is there anyone else who has seen this in their MS evolution? Tell me something about?
I have read it takes about 5 years after diagnosis to get a "feeling" about the course of ones MS. I'm a long time since onset but 5 years past diagnosis. A lot of years spent "benign". As my doc said at diagnosis "I was benign once but I'm not anymore" when I brought the topic up.
5 years after diagnosis, I am beginning to believe I will follow a cognitive course, like the reply I read a few days ago.
This is painful to me, as I'm sure to him too. I was always slightly short on looks but strong on smarts. I consoled myself often enough.'.looks fade but intelligence stays', I would rather be smart than the blonde bombshell that my sister is'
A higher being than I got the last word on that one! :o
What has been the evolution of others that are primarily cognitively affected? How long since diagnosis & what meds were used? What is/has beens your experience?
