I was born with left side spastic hemiplegia/hemiparesis. I wore a brace on my left left as a child, and my left hand never worked very well. But it is still very mild. Most people never knew. My speech, writing, thinking, walking were all close to normal. I never took typing or band in school. I became a special ed teacher,
As I age, I trip frequently especially when I'm tired, and it's harder to walk normal looking. I wear contact lens but the last few years shortly after getting a new prescription, my eyes are blurry. My speech has also become a problem, because my words jumble up and I have to repeat my self to say what I mean. My husband thinks I may have Parkinson's because my head and neck twitch sometimes. I went to the doctor cause I thought I might be having siezures. The EEG came back normal, but the report from MRI brain scan said my brain has many more lesions than it should and looks like a brain with MS. Is it really possible to have CP and MS? I am being treated for FM and I am 60 years old.
