My Story 0 Appreciate this

I am married with two grown kids, a dog and cat. I use to walk three miles and was active in many other ways. Felt 30 years younger than my true age. May have had slight symptoms for a few years off and on but it did not disrupt my life. One night I laid down on the couch and pain started in one leg and immediately went to the other. From that day on I was unable to walk very well due to the pain and slight weakness. Doc put me on Tysabri right away but after six months I tested positive for JVC virus. Tried Avonex and had severe side effects. My third medication, that I am presently on is Tecfidera. Still living with the pain, very severe at times. Take lyrica twice a day. Not a lot of help. I am working for insurance and phamacy benefits Since my diagnosis I have bad and good days. I focus on diet and stretching exercises. I miss walking my dog, shopping and being able to do other the things I use to do..
