I was 58 years old when I was diagnosed with MS! Sunday afternoon's were spent in having a Sunday church service for residents in a nursing home. I remember one young lady who was there in a wheel chair and unable to move except with her eyes! I remember being so upset by her state that I said to the Lord, "please Lord, I could not handle this!" My father's wife, not related, was diagnosed about 60. After the first shock of knowing why I felt numbness in my limbs and fatigue, it has been a 15 year journey of almost normal living until now in January of 2016. Needless to say, I have felt very blessed by God for these 15 years. Now, I am perplexed by a growing numbness now working it's way up both legs in quick fashion! I am wanting to hear if others have experienced this and if there is something that I could do to stop the progression. I have been taking copaxone all this time.
