My name is Nicholas, and I am 26 years old.
I've been struggling medically for years because of a misdiagnosis; it was only in March of this year that I finally received the correct diagnosis of multiple sclerosis after a week-long stay at the Virginia Hospital Center.
While there I had a second brain MRI, full body MRI, CT scan, x-rays, a lot of blood work, and a spinal tap. I learned that there are currently innumerable lesions in my brain and that I also have lesions throughout my entire spine.
This is going to be a challenge; mine is already pretty advanced after going untreated for an unknown amount of time (suspected five years), but I will persevere.
My entire life changed so much so suddenly, so I've been starting my life all over.
I'm learning to adjust to and live my life with MS and I'm working on getting my body into better physical condition because I was very crippled before.
I do all that I can to smile, smile, smile and keep my chin up. I meditate, and push through each day hoping that the next might be even better!
I would love to find others that have been living with multiple sclerosis to talk to and learn from, and be friends with. I really enjoy finding others with MS to follow, talk to, and learn from. I started Tysabri on 3/29/2013.
