It was one year on June 28 since I went numb. Many of you have heard my tale. I was athletic, 68-year-old long distance bicyclist averaging 150 to 200 miles a week! I spent most of the last year sitting up in bed, keeping my feet warm. Thank goodness I wound up with excellent doctors at the MS CLINIC at UCSF. Many MRIs with and without contrast, 35 vials of blood, spinal tap, nerve conduction test, optical nerve testing. Started on gabapentin and quickly moved up to seven capsules a day. Received tentative MS diagnosis in Dec. Definite diagnosis of lesions in T2-T5 spine. No changes in over six months of MRIs of 20+ white spots in my brain. Started modafinil at the beginning of April, gradually getting more active. One of the best things I can say is that I have found MSAA and this talk forum.. 💞😍👍 I am happy to announce to all that I will once again be able to rejoin my bicycling group as a support driver as they ride down the coast of California to raise funds for a well-deserving charity! It will be a six-day 360 mile ride, camping at night, finishing the last day with an overnight stay at Universal City! This would've been my 10th year riding the event! I am thrilled to participate in any manner.
We leave in 2 weeks! Loving and thanking you all for your encouragement and support. 💞😍🦋🌈🚴🏽🚴♀️🚴🏽🚴♀️🚴🏽🚴♀️🚴🏽🚴♀️Lynn
There is life after diagnosis !!
