I was diagnosed in July 2014 and have gained support, understanding and information from others who have been recently diagnosed. I had intense vertigo, facial twitching and fatigue like I've never experienced that brought me in for diagnosis. I thought I might have a brain tumor. Now two years later I have a bunch of symptoms, but all mild to moderate enough to live with without need for medication (other than my Copaxone). The rundown of my symptoms: stiffness and weakness in my arms and legs; numbness and tingling in my face and limbs; heat sensitivity; fatigue; some cognitive difficulties. Changes I've made that I believe have made a difference include an improved diet (a smoothly in the morning; more raw salads and veggies; more fish and less meat, low salt); supplements like vitamin D3, tumeric, fish oil, B12; daily exercise and stretching; and a good attitude ☺️.
Questions I've been grappling with:
I understand many people make near full recovery from attacks, but I seem to have a bunch of mild to moderate symptoms that persist. Is that your experience?
What do you do that helps you manage your MS? What works for you?
