Me, Myself, and Tysabri
My life has come to a stand still. Fact. It is at a point where changes need to occur or I will slowly wither away. All the things that define me as a person have been taken away from me. This blog will chart my attempt to regain a number of things that I feel MS has taken from me. My quest to regain my old self begins with starting on the Tysabri drug programme. This will give me the boost I need to focus on living life to the fullest with my beautiful partner. Let the journey begin......
Ramblings of Casey
I went to my neurologist to get the results of my lumbar puncture! All of the results were in except one. So far there is only one abnormality and it is the abnormality that the neurologist expected to be there. It basically says that there was/is an inflammation of my myelin sheath. So this confirms the diagnosis of transverse myelitis or multiple sclerosis. The test that would determine if it was multiple sclerosis is the one that is not back yet. No matter what the test comes back as I could still have multiple sclerosis (if it is early stages of ms sometimes it wont show up in the test) if the test is positive then I will be diagnosed with ms but if it comes back negative then I will be diagnosed with transverse myelitis unless I end up having a second attack. For both transverse myelitis or MS there is no cure just ways to manage the symptoms.
