Hey Everyone, I have a couple of questions for you.
First: How often do you get sick? Since I have had MS I never get sick. I haven't had a cold or flu or anything for years. Then immediately after CCSVI, I got strep throat. And two weeks after that the stomach flu. I think that that is a good sign. Only because the way MS is explained to me our immune systems over work, so unless we take the MS drugs our bodies over fight common sickness. So if you can please comment your answers about getting sick that would be great so I can see if I am right or wrong.
Second: How many of you have dizziness as part of your MS symptoms? I hear so much about people having trouble with walking, blurred vision, blindness, numb feet or hands, and closing of the throat. I have had numb feet (during a flare up) dizziness to the point where the entire room spins, blurred vision, closing throat, and aches and pains. When you are in remission do you have little attacks of your relapsing symptoms?
My Dr. told me that every now and then I would feel tiny attacks but it did not mean I was having a relapse. SO, do all of you have tiny attacks that last for 5 mins or so? And then go away? I want to know more about my disease from the people who know best. Not Dr.s but the ones who suffer from this.
So please answer in the comment section, or if you want to email me firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks T
