It’s Heat Stroke

Back in the 90’s I started going in and out of the hospital. I would be drained of energy, have trouble walking, electric like shock going up and down side of my body or the other. Every time I was told although your body isn’t producing the enzymes for a definite diagnosis we believe your on the verge of having heat stroke.

Then in August of 2006 I had a headache so bad I couldn’t hold my head up. I was a truck driver on a delivery. I delivered and went to bed. When I woke up I couldn’t see out of my right eye. I picked up my next load, went to the emergency room and was told, again, I was having heat stroke and wanted to admit me. No, I’ve heard this song before, left AMA, picked up my next load and drove 4 hours to my home.

The next morning my Dr. called and had me admitted to the hospital where they did blood work and an EKG then discharged me the next morning. The doctor found there was something odd about the EKG and needed me to get a MRI. From there you can imagine the rest. A week later I had a diagnosis of MS.
