My MS seems to be progressing rapidly and i need some support/info. My story shortened the best I can is... woke upp 12-11-08 with a "heavy arm" then ob=ver the next 3-4 days experiemced lside weakness and footdrop wich lead to an MRI with a lesion. Neuro said looked like a small stroke (i'm26yo btw with low BP and almost no risk factors 4 stroke) but wanted me to have full lab and spinal to be sure. I recovered w=very well (*and fast) from my "stroke". I went to f/u with my neuro expecting to hear how impressed he was with my improvement etc. and instead he showed me my spinal tap results showed I have MS and that was a lesion on my brain not a stroke... Only 2 wks later my R side of my face went numb and my balance went off. I couldnt walk a straight line or drive talkiing was slurred the whole 9. This is just now finally going back 2 normal except my face is still numb but my balance is back I can drive and writting is TERRIBLE but I can do it. so I'm going back 2 work 2mro and thinking things are gonna get normal 4 me. last night my L arm and leg began 2 tingle that feeling u have just before ur foot falls asleep. I started Betaseron just 1 1/2 wk ago and I did do a round of steroids 4 the facial stuff. I'm so scared that sx are never gonna stop and I may have a very serious case or something. My neuro is very aloof and I am waiting to see a 2nd (referal than 2mo b-4 an open appt etc) so it is hard not to be scared when ur dr offers u no info except 4 u have MS u will give urself shots forever to make it better have a good day. Anyone else experience this at first?? Help! Just ur stories and info makes me feel better. Thanks
