New- Introduction

Hi, I am new here. I was diagnosed with MS in 2015 after a severe attack. I was put on 5 days of steroids. The doctor informed me it was an aggressive MS. He said I most likely had it for several years. This would explain why I had broke both of my legs the year before. I was trying to relearn how to walk at the time which may have contributed to the attack which made it so severe. During the next year my symptoms actually became worse to the point I am in a wheelchair and constantly have numbness in hands and feet. Neurologist has diagnosed me with PRMS. But enough negativity. I try to be positive. Thankful each day for what I have. Not thinking about what I lost.

I am sorry you have MS, I know how frightening it can be. The one thing that saved my sanity in my early MS days was finding a group of people with MS on the internet. Not only do we understand what you are going through but you are safe to share here.
