Finally found a forum which won't get closed. I had been on other forum of ms, thought that i'll stay permanent on that site, but the domain was one day put on sale.
I'am male 21 yrs. Got ms diagnosed when i was 18, specifically 17th July, 2009. I had several symptoms of MS at that time, ranging from numbness, tingling sensation, severe optic neuritis, balance problem, heat intolerance, vertigo, swallowing prob. and an unusual skin sensation which i still don't know how to describe and few more which i don't even remember. So, was put on IV steroids for five days, was hopefully back to normal, no blance prob, optic neuritis solved to much gerater extent.
Fortunately by God's grace, i'am doing well. I'am learning to cope up with MS and i'am trying to overcome this MS by doing Paranayams(Breathing Exercise Yoga) and not let MS take me over. I was an athletic kind of person, So, i just cant understand that how MS got me. One of the reason that i think is environmental factors and high stress/anxiety, chicken pox in child hood and i'am somewhat sure about these MS causing factors.
I've not discussed about my problem(MS) with my friends, teachers because, i hate sympathy and sometimes sympathy hurts rather than relieving your pain and i know that there will surely be a day when we will be cured off this problem. ^_^
Thanks, for creating such a website,
I sometimes feel very bad when people say you look soo well, so why are you in hospital, i say nothing to them except to give them a smile, i keep all my words within my self. Right now i am suffereing from numbness in left half of my body and double vision which i think is due to muscle weakness of my left eye, from last 20 days, my left hand is kind of heavy right now as it's numb, even typing is bit difficult.. I know it will be fine someday.
I just stopped my Avonex treatment 3 months back, i was on that therapy for 1&1/2 year, i'am trying to do Paranayams(Breathing exercises). You can google Paranayam for more information on what exactly is Paranayam, because it will really help.
The rule that i sometimes follow is :-
"Expect for the worst and least might happen"
