You know you have MS when…

You are probably all too familiar with the typical symptoms associated with having MS, like spasticity, cognitive impairment, fatigue, and difficulty with mobility, among many others. However, there’s so much more to having MS than what one would find in a textbook. We wanted to know more about your everyday life with MS, so we asked our Facebook community to respond to the statement, “You know you have MS when____.” We heard from over 150 of you, and here’s what you had to say!

    I do take pain meds and muscle relaxers. That combined with the mobility issues have caused a few to think I have taken too much or that I am drunk. I do not drink alcohol and do not over medicate.

    I have several herniated discs and sciatica, along with spinal stenosis and MS which causes my mobility to be a greater issue. Any suggestions as to what kind of device I might need?

    You know you have MS, when you can’t make it across the room without mobility issues.

    You know you have MS when the spasm in your foot sends your toes, which you can’t move in three different directions and your hand which doesn’t grasp gets locked into a fist which you can’t pry open.

    You know you have MS when you just feel incredibly weird and know it is the monster.
