I have been hanging around in the background for a few days and thought it was about time I introduced myself.
My name is Chris and I'm 52 - I was diagnosed some ten or eleven years ago and was retired from my job as a Computer Programmer shortly afterwards.
I have never been told that I fall into the PPMS category but as I have never had relapses, just a continual progression of symptoms, I think that must be it. I have never taken any medication, or been offered any, but I am now pushing my GP to let me try LDN.
I am just about mobile around the house, though my wife Cathy claims that I roll around the walls rather than walk. Balance and fatigue are my worst problems, I consider myself very lucky not to have experienced much in the way of pain that I read others are having, just cramps and tenderness.
That's enough for now, I have to write to my GP again, trying to speed things up.
All the best,
