    At long last have answers to why my legs are so worn out the previous 12 yrs. I have PPMS. My legs feel like 1000lb weights. My equalization is unpleasant. In the event that I exercise them, they feel like noodles. I don’t have torment. I am fortunate. It is solitary my legs. My vision, upper quality isn’t influenced. I currently require a push truck to walk alone. Everybody read adult manhwa needs me to attempt CBD oil and I have 3 distinct occasions. Nothing. I have attempted the medication Ampyra. Nothing. I don’t recognize what to do straight away. Going to take a stab at dispensing with sugar and carbs next. I feel like a miserable challenged person now.

    @myanime002,

    I know what you mean. I went decades with my legs feeling like they were stuck in cement. I went to lots of doctors and told them what I was feeling. Some of them just took notes. One of the note-takers sent me to a neurologist that just did an EMG and found nothing. By then, I was really having trouble with my cement legs and walking. My feet had tremors and I was having trouble with cognition. I went to another neurologist for a second opinion. He noticed right away from the way I walked and was just sitting there. He sent me to have an MRI of my brain and spine. I came back to learn what was wrong with me. He showed me the MRI and pointed to my brain, neck, and spine. All covered with lesions. He told me I had MS. I screamed and cried all the way home. I called my last remaining aunt and mentioned the MS. She said yeah, it runs in the family, and that her daughter is in a wheelchair. Crap, my damn mother took that secret to her grave.

    HI myanime002! I am sorry you waited so long to get a proper diagnosis! Unfortunately, that’s a common theme here — the long road to diagnosis. I also hope you and your physician are able to find a treatment that works well for you and brings you some relief from your symptoms. As you can see from Carol’s reply, you are not alone in this! Thank you for sharing a piece of your story with the community. You are welcome here anytime you need to share or even just vent. Best, Erin, MultipleSclerosis.net Team Member.
