Lois MS Story

I am new to this site and I like what I see.

I am not sure, neither are physicians when my MS started, because as a young teen, I started having seizures. They came to a halt in my twenties. I went from Dr to Dr trying to find an answer to my fatigue and muscle spasms in my legs.

After 5 neurology visits and rheumatology test. I was finally told by a neurosurgeon following open hand carpal tunnel surgery in 1987. After the MS injectables came out. I did not have very good luck, as a fast heart rate set in with me. So those, I do not take. I am to the place now. That my back is very affected..due to my gait problems.

So I don’t know what it is like…to experience a “good day”..except that I try to stay with a positive attitude. I just see primary Drs now as the MS Drugs do not seem to agree with me.

From what I can determine, this is a nice site. I happened to see it on FB. Thank you. Lois

    Lois,
    We’re glad that you are here and pleased that you like the site. Although you are not using MS drugs, you may find it helpful to see an MS specialist at least occasionally to help keep track of how your disease is doing. You may not experience what others might describe as a “good day”, but your positive attitude which shines through sounds like the makings of a good day indeed.

    Thanks Lisa for your kind words. I was seeing an MS Specialist and they turned me over to a Rheumatologist and I saw him for 20 years. Nothing was done but blood work monitored. so after they did many Mri’S TO check..I found it hard to drive nearly 3 hours to not hear anything new. I have learned more by research and support groups.
