Diagnosed as a Teenager

Last updated: June 2020

3 years ago, I was 15 and was diagnosed with MS when my right arm went numb. Followed by that my right leg went numb and that continued for 2 years. I have been alone most of 3 years because I have not had a doctor close to where I live so I have not really had anyone to ask if my symptoms were normal. I am on Rebif and it had helped reduce my lesions substantially but causes a great amount of pain, and I hope to be off it within the next few years.
