Hello, im Tiffany. im new here so i just want to do a lil background story..
It was August the summer of 09 and i was at my sisters graduation party and was experiencing some numbing in my feet and legs so any ways by the next day i was being carried into the car because i was unable to walk on my own. So my mother took me to the hospital and they ran a tons of tests on me and 4 days later came to the conclusion i had MS. This was one of the saddest/hardest days of my life. my life changed from that point on..
i have never fully recovered from that first episode, my balance has never fully came back, my knees are now locking and popping, bladder is always wanting to empty, toes and fingers are always numb.
so now 2 years later i am on rebif and looking into stem cell therapy.. i don't really know that much about it but on April 5 & 6 i will be going to Chicago to meet the doctors and have an MRI to see if they will approve me for this study.. i feel like this will be one of the biggest decisions i have ever made..
well that's a little bit of background and a little update for you guys
