My story

Hello, I was diagnosed in 2016 and I'm from Slovenia ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฎ.

It noticed my right hand was numb I began to have tingling all over my body and then the MS hug. Then I was about 6 months in 3 different hospitals. I took several tests: a MRI, brain likvor, blood tests and a biopsy in the neck and spine.

At first, they thought it is ms then transverse myelitis and at the end it was NMO. I received Solumedrol IV then other treatments ๐Ÿ’Š. They give me 3 doses of Rituximab and till today the illness is in remission, so my neurologist said. Sadly, I have tingling still all over the body in my right arm my nerves burn ๐Ÿ”ฅ I have elec tric sensors, and I am fatigued ๐Ÿ˜ฉ.

Stay strong my friends... We have this๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’š
