I woke up July 14 of 2020 and thought I was just tired legs were very weak went on like this until July 18 started experiencing numbness, and tingling, pins and needles. I knew then this wasn't normal. I had the energy to take myself to the emergency room.
After several tests...
Once I got there they told me they had to admit me. I had several tests done, MRI, CT scan you name found lesions in my brain and on my spinal cord I got worse after that. Eventually, they sent my labs off to mayo clinic they determined I had NMO.
I have overactive nerves I'm experiencing something called the ms hug very uncomfortable it's hard at times to breathe. When I walk I wobble side to side so I need my walker so I won't fall in street when I have to go out.
This is my story.
