My Story 0 Appreciate this

Thinking back I may have had MS symptoms earlier than first thought. I had blurred vision and numbness/tingling in my hands about 3 years ago, of course thought nothing of it as it went away in a week or so. I then had Achilles repair surgery and noticed afterwards I was feeling different. I've never been in doctors offices before this Achilles issue. I thought all my problems were related to the Achilles surgery recovery. After almost 2 years I was concerned why my legs were still so weak. I've been to Optomologist, Podiatrist, Urologist, Orthapedic and finally the Neurologist. I wish I would've went to the Neurologist first, would've saved me a lot of time in doctor's offices. I now know all these problems came from one diagnosis now - MS. My Neurologist assured me my case is still in somewhat of the early stages although chronic but, manageable and treatable. I'm ready to fight this head on with everything I got - if anything, this will force me to live a healthier lifestyle and become stronger. I'm actually kind of relieved to finally have a diagnosis so, I know what's been ailing me. Now that I know what it is, I'm bringing the fight. My goal is to run again (I haven't in 3 years) and was athletic my whole life, playing baseball through college and still very active with my children. I have 2 children ages 8 and 9 that I'm very involved and active with still...they're all the motivation I need to get better and.... I WILL - REGA STRONG
