Only 18 and Living with MS
I am 18 years old and was recently diagnosed with RRMS. According to my neuro, she says I have had it since I was younger. I have lesions on my brain and they cover my spine.
I mainly have a tingling or buzzing in my hands and feet and I get frequent migraines. I lose my balance at times and can also be forgetful. I am still working on recognizing my most common symptoms.
I'm still working on getting treatment. It is complicated with the insurance companies. It has placed a turn in my road of life.
Going off to college was my main goal as an 18 year old and it still is but I have to be more aware of what I am doing. I do not want to have a flare up while away at college.
My MS has luckily not progressed into something as severe as what other people have. For the most part I can live my life as normal while taking some precautions for my health. Fighting MS will make me stronger!
