Hi everyone,
I was dx RRMS in 2003. At that time I had thirteen lesions, plus, and it took about a year to recover my main walking abilities and sensation, equilibrium etc. Later I was in and out of a wheelchair (5 months) but even with that stayed really active, researching where I could take the chair, doing bike paths, trying to find ways to get into nature with it etc. I didn't want to get as isolated as I'd become with my first flare... so I really tried to keep getting out. Now, sometimes my pain gets really bad (primarily torso pain), and/or fatigue, but right now I'm generally walking ok, sometimes with a cane, sometimes without. I try to do an exercise bike as walking too far often exacerbates my issues in torso... I did copaxone from 2003 to 2010 but had a few flares during that time and am now trying Gilenya--and trying to up my exercise and also stretching for spasticity. I'm glad to find this site. Gracias.
