OK I do not recall my scores but they were advancing enough that my neuro put me out on disability for good - as in I am now on ssdi & have qualified for medicare - oh joy ;o(
The walking well, let's just say I had all sorts of gait issues and did a lot of PT, mucho spasticity too. I was on vicodin, neurotin, lexapro, RX motrin, RX naprosen, and I forget the name of the last neuro pain med that threw on a RAPID 30lbs! (Lyrica!)...I was the person who was constantly pulled aside for the "CVS consult" b/c they could not believe I could be breathing on all that drug. Failed on Avonex, Beta-Serum, Copaxone, Rebiff, IVIG, Pulse steroids & LDN b/c my MRI's demonstrated a COSTANT level of inflamation & disease activity... so much so that I qualified for the HALT MS NIH study almost immediately. Was using a cane (have a collection of 3 so there is always 1 nearby) And had to stop working when the MS began to impair my cognitive function I was a Market Manager for a leading respiratory company (globally) & then stepped down into starting up the Market Research & development Division for that same company... u can imagine how had it was to have my manager sit me down to review my work and hear that he couldn't understanding while I was struggling running figures since I had been doing it for YEARS... so awful, but they understood why my MD put me out for good. Fatigue was a HUGE issue & I could no longer be 75% travel in my job either. Standing up for long periods of time... um, well, I still don't do that too often but at trade shows it it was awful! My vision has been quite challenged too - I suffer from duplopia on & off so often I elect NOT to drive anywhere though I do maintain a valid license.
Then thee is the general, bladder/bowel stuff, loss of libido & well, nerve pain from the uncomfortable tingly stuff to the "don't touch me" everything hurt stabbing pain.
The thing is I do have RRMS & many of thee things over time do return to acceptable levels of function for me - never quite to the starting point but close enough that I can accept, work around, & move on.
Many things seem to be turning around for me now - I continue with the PT routines b/c well, the stretching etc. is something we all need along with mild exercise but by far the greatest gain has been the lack of fatigue. Vision has improved, pain went away a few years back when I cult ALL diet foods, sodas etc. & ALL caffeinated products switching to an ayervedic menu which promotes the reduction on systemic inflammation so I cannot credit G for that but I will say it has not returned.
I hope this helps - do let me know if I can be more specific!
PS Pre G MRI as in taken less than a week prior to me first dose showed 7 NEW placks
So I am MOST excited to see how they are doing now & will keep you posted!
