I was diagnosed with Relapsing Remitting Multiple Sclerosis (RRMS) in February of 2012 after years of trying to find answers. I went through years of being told there was nothing wrong with me, and basically that I was crazy. Fortunately, with the help of my partner at the time, I kept moving forward, documenting my day to day symptoms and life. Finally I found the MS center of Atlanta, and within a month of seeing them and getting the appropriate testing (MRI with contrast, Spinal Tap, etc) I finally had an answer to all the issues I had been having, Multiple Sclerosis!
I started on the clinical trials for Ocreluzamab, now called Ocrevus. Initial I was blinded, but was told I was either on Rebif or Ocreluzamab. After the first year my relapses deminished, and until 2/2017 I had been relapse free since 5/2014. It was reveled after the first phase that I had been on Ocreluzamab the entire time.
This last relapse has been a big one. I did the steriods and now at almost a month out, my progress has stopped and I am finding my normal. Now I have a wheelchair to use for distances because my left leg isn't quite working and I get very fatigued even with my cane. I have become a fall/fracture risk. I can walk for short distances and can stand for about 15/20 minutes before my leg just won't do it anymore and I have to sit. Starting physical therapy this week as well.
