Hi hlm, You'll find everyone's stories are different, yet so much the same. My diagnosis came totally out of the blue 3+ years ago. I woke up one day with my legs feeling "funny." Less than a week later, I could barely walk. I had the three days of IV steroids, and for me they had an immediate impact. By the week after the steroids were done, I was able to walk again without using my husband's golf clubs as canes. I was slow and unsteady, and I still am to some degree, but it took a month or so to get back to what is my new normal (tired, pins & needles, spasticity to name a few), but it's tolerable. Knock on wood, I haven't had a noticeable relapse since. Things should settle down and you'll find a way to deal with whatever's on your plate. We all have, and we all understand what you're going through now. It's a scary time, but truly not without hope.
Here's to a quick end to your current symptons. You found a really good place at TIMS for help and resources.
