Good day to you all,
Firstly, I think everyone of you are strong, brave and inspirational after reading some of the topics, articles, posts on here,
Following 6 months of unknowns – In Feb 19 –
I was rushed into hospital following a Dr visit, as they thought I had GBS (loss of feeling and numbness in lower section), but following tests, spinal tap, it was inconclusive, and I was sent home. Since then I have had episodes – numbness and trickling down face sensation (usually after I exercise), and drop foot on one or two occasions after sitting in one location. All my checks came back ok.
Until my brain scan – advised on lesion of c3 cord, and signals of abnormality, some periventricular – but none were brainstem or cerebellar, but the Dr concluded these are the first clinical manifestations of MS.
I am about to venture into the unknown, my consultant, is advising on a course of disease modifying drugs, I couldn’t really understand everything he said to be honest. other then the drugs may have some adverse effects, itching, memory loss, depression etc……
As a single father – turned 40, devoted to his 5 year old daughter, and C-Level (Director) Career, I am worried about this my life, how it will play out, my career, there are so many unknowns, I guess I am looking for answers, and asking for some support or responses to what to expect, what to change or do, what diet to follow, all advice is greatly appreciated.
I read all about Montell Jordan’s Keto and fitness diet. Any books recommendations of medicine, and has anyone actually become symptom free, lastly but most important, the impact on my daughter.
I have been diagnosed for 1 month now, at present all I feel is tingling, or a weakness in my fingers, and possibly tiredness. I have not had an ‘attack’ for over 2 months now.
Thank you all for taking the time to read this, and yes admittedly I am scared, and it’s taken a month to write something……
