I first noticed something was wrong about 2 years ago. The symptoms started in my feet with numbness and pain in my lower back. I thought it was something like a pinched nerve and went to a chiropractor. XRays did not show anything so I did not pay much attention to it until a few weeks ago when I began having trouble walking and standing. I went to my doctor who sent me for a brain MIR and that is when lesions were discovered on my brain. I went to a neurologist and was diagnosed with MS after having a spinal tap and more tests. I had a feeling I had MS but was still a little shocked by the news. Nobody in my family, as far as I know had MS so I do not have any idea where it came from. My journey with MS starts here and I am so relieved that a foundation/support system like this one exists. I hope one day soon a cure is discovered!!
