A few months ago, i was taking a shower and felt something under my foot. I tried to remove whatever was under my feet and that's when i realized that THERE WAS NOTHING THERE!! The best way i can describe it is that all day long, it felt like i was standing on gravel while barefoot. It was then that i realized that the soles of my feet (only the left foot) and my legs up to my knees (both legs) were actually numb. That lasted for about 3 months or so and just like that things went back to normal.
I heard a story about someone i know who woke up one day a few weeks ago and couldn't see. Long story short, turns out that his doctors are almost 100% sure that he has MS.
Everyday i wake up and hope that nothing will strike! In addition, when something odd happens, i immediately wonder if it's a new sympton that i will have to deal with. Having MS has made me very aware of my body and any changes that i experience. Now, as soon as i notice something odd happening, i make sure to be aware of when it started, how long it lasted, exactly how it affected me etc. Oftentimes, i hope that it's just my "old" body doing its thing to get thru the day.
