I was just diagnosed 3 weeks ago after experiencing loss of vision and eye pain (incorrectly diagnosed by 3 doctors as optic migraine) about two months ago. The vision became a little better but blurry and then I got numbness and eventually weakness in the leg and difficulty walking (incorrectly diagnosed as nerve damage in the hip). Eventually after much pleading I got an MRI and it showed approximately 12 significant lesions and a number of smaller ones in the brain. Suggested that cervical had 3 lesions at the C3 level but the spinal MRI wasn't done at that point (don't have results yet for it).
I don't know what to do now. I still can't see. I still can't walk. Will these ever come back. I'm 40 years old and I can probably trace this back for at least 10 years. I have significant bladder/bowel issues and have for many years now. I'm still waiting for the MS neurologist appointment. I'm so confused. I just want to surrender. I am a fitness instructor and a student. I can't move and I can't read so my life is just on hold. I don't even know should I be resting or trying to walk. I'm so confused. Help me.
