Im new to this. My daughter is 31 she was recently diagnosed bout 5 yrs ago. I dont understand all the different stages or what to expect. She lost sight in her left eye now has back. She was put on some meds because she was having terrible pain in her face. She couldnt walk. Dr said maybe the meds give a week. Shes walking a little bit as long as shes holding on to the counter. I donr understand the lesions. Hoping to find some help on here. Thank u so mucn

I'm sorry to hear this about your daughter. What sort of doctor? Has she gone to a neurologist to be property diagnosed? It is very important to be seen by a neurologist and to find one that she can trust. I hope that you can research MS to help understand and to be able to talkl to your daughter when she has problems.
