Employee Health Screening

Hello all,

I have a quick question for anyone that can help.

I am starting a new job in a few weeks and have to undergo a pre-employment physical with the organization's "employee health" department.

Question about PPMS...

For those of you that have PPMS, can I ask how it started? I'm still in the pre-diagnosis phase and i'm scared it might be the progressive kind. I know it's a little bit less likely because i'm 22, female, and it started with my eyes, but my eyes haven't resolved yet and as i mentioned before really the only other symptom would be getting achey/weak legs (only) around that time of the month (that ...
