Just thought it was about time i started researching and getting in contact with others suffering from MS
Currently living in Perth AUS, still a young un at 22
I was diagnosed recently in november of 2013 with RRMS
Started with migraine like symptoms(never suffered from a migraine at all) flashing lights loss of balance, foggy vision, loss of left side vision(both eye's) and fovial(center) vision, slight numbness left hand side, splitting headache located on the left hand side of my head.
This continued for a few hours, once the headache ceased the visual disturbances didn't abate, nor have they changed since the first attack, went in for what my gp assumed could be a minor stroke, went in for MRI and CAT scans which showed 3 legions all on the left hemisphere
a month and a half later (about a month on betaferon) had my second attack. Bells palsy left hand side, numbness, troubles speaking and change of walking gait, weakness left hand side
Total of 9 legions now spattered over left and right hemisphere, none in brainstem thankfully. None of which have showed signs of improvement
Nor has sight improved,healthy optic nerves nor problems with the eye's.
Currently i am considering part time employment as my last job(Chef) is no longer and option and living by yourself with MS at least for me at the moment is no easy feat.
So just saying hi and hoping to learn quite a lot from here.
Life's not all that bad just struggling at the moment to work out coping mechanisms and mannerisms to lead a relatively normal life.
Hope to hear from you guys
