It is time for another MS Tuesday post. I haven’t done one of these in a while because I haven’t had anything to talk about when it comes to my Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Like I have said before if there is ever anything you want to see in one of these posts please let me know and I would be more than happy to write about it.
Anyway today I am going to write about a weird feeling I had the last week. I am not sure if I have ever written about the very first MS symptom that I had but this post will ties into that. The first symptom that I know was the MS was when I was in high school and my left leg started to drag at random times and it just wouldn’t work. I can remember going to see doctors about this and everyone thinking we were making it up but long story short this was the first time I realized that something was wrong.
So last week I had a really weird feeling in my left leg. The best way I can describe it is by saying it felt like it was going to give out while I was walking. I haven’t felt anything like that before and I hope I don’t ever have to feel it again. My leg never did give out but it felt like it could at any moment. As I write it down I guess a better way to describe it would be weakness in my leg.
The medication that I take for the MS can cause you to get a condition called PML and the signs of that can seem like an MS relapse. So my doctor tells me that if I have any weird things going on that last for more than a day to call her and they will get me in to make sure that I am not getting PML. Thank god the feeling was gone by the next morning so I can just chalk it up to a random MS symptom. I am for sure going to tell her about when I see her in September after the MRI I have scheduled at the end of August.
Other than that I have been totally stable and haven’t had anything other than the headaches but I have had them for as long as I can remember so I forget most of the time that they are even there.
How have you been doing? Is there anything about MS you would like to know?
