My Story 0 Appreciate this

Hi everyone Been on my MS journey for about 5 years now. It started out with intermittent burning sensations on the right side of my body. One night, (what scared me the most), I lost all sensations in my leg and limped for about 60 seconds. Eventually I got diagnosed with ms after various MRIs, blood work and a lumbar puncture. Since then I have been on Copaxone, Rebif and now Tecfidera, not because of progression but I wasn't able to tolerate the first two DMDs. Rebif was especially bad as every shot made me ill. I was popping ibuprofen pills so much because nothing else worked to help relieve the symptoms that eventually developed Gerd. Physically, I can say that I am well but we all know that MS doesn't only affect you in that way. It has been more of an emotional battle with increased anxiety attacks, depression and recently sporadic fatigue spells. Still there is always the thought in that back of my head asking what will be next. But all in all, I thank God for blessing me to wake up and be functional. Also I thank Him for an amazing support system of family and friends and only hope that I can be a blessing to someone else who shares this journey. :)
