I was diagnosed with MS on 03-19-2012. While I am glad that I finally know why I am having all of these symptoms.....I am still frightened of the unknown. For years I have had problems with balance and walking and no one could figure out why. I am glad that I now know why, it is difficult to think that it will never get better. I am unable to walk without a cane, being able to grab on to walls or furniture, or the assistance of others. I have some books/literature to read but I would like to be able to hear from others that are going through the same thing. I am currently taking Avonex but if I understand it right, things will not get better but the Avonex can prevent rhings from getting worse.....is that right? I have so many questions and concerns it would be a great help to hear from others that are dealing with MS as well.
