Had a wonderful evening, spending time with family. Tuning into life instead of my MS and symptoms helps them feel less present and less pervasive. The problem with MS is symptoms are new or in flux. They don’t always feel the same. For me I have a baseline numbness that blends into the background. If something feels the same your attention isn’t always brought to it.

I was diagnosed at 20 years old with RRMS. At first I just had fatigue, some tingling, and numbness that came with a relapse and went away. On a hot day when I was walking I would feel some tingling, sometimes I would get a little fatigued, but everything still felt mostly normal. Then at 22 I had a major relapse that made me walk like a drunk at a university where drinking was against the rules. A week later I had horrible back spasms that were very violent and almost seizure like- though I was conscious and very aware … Continue reading The Ups and Downs of Day to Day MS Symptoms
