Hi, my name is Ashlea and I am new to this site. I am 23.
I was diagnosed with MS January 2011, so 1 year ago, when my entire right side of my body went numb. I had previous things happen, bur it wasn't until then that I knew what was going on.I recovered about 80% from that flare up and got most of the feeling back in my right side. I have had two flare ups since then. I am on Copaxone.
For about 4 days now, my right arm is messed up. It feels stiff, weak, like pins and needles kind of, heavy. My shoulder and wrist hurt. I keep dropping everything. When I squeezed my husbands hand, there is little to no grip from my right hand and fingers. To sum it up, I feels so uncomfortale.....
Is this spacticity? Is it from the weather. Is this something I call nuerologist about. Is this cause by another lesion (and if so, brain or spinal cord?). What can I do to help it. I feel like soon I won't be able to use my right hand or arm.
