I have been recently diagnosed with MS. I am from India so its extremely rare here.
My symptoms began with stiffness in my left hand and stiff grip in left palm. Reports showed couple of lesions in brain and few in Spine. Blood test all came normal except Low Vitamin D level.
That was the only symptom in the beginning. I started taking Rebif 22 mg twice a week and couple of Multi Vitamins. After a while since the left palm stiffness was not going, I changed the Neuro. Apparently this guy is the best Neuro here. He Changed my medicine from Rebif to Avonex. and he gave me couple of vitamins such as Cod Liver oil capsules, Omega Fatty acid supplements etc.
symptoms have been okay until couple of weeks where I started feeling stretchy and weakness in my face.Seems it will drop down . Also, there this temporary weakness in my right arm which comes and goes. When this happened for first few days I freaked out and ran to my Neuro in Emergency thinking that I was having a Stroke.
Neuro said you are okay. Gave me couple of anti anxiety stuff and they sort of worked. But I still have episodes where I would feel weird weakness in my face and right hand. Of anything, it definitely scares me demoralizes everything around me. As it comes and goes, I am sort of not very scared of it now.
Wanted to know if you guys feel this way ? Also, these lesions in head, they can not be strokes right ? As in I have shown my MRI reports to 3 Neur s now and they all pointed towards MS.
I am 27 years old male.
Looking forward to your replies.
