Hi, my name is claire and I have ms other health problems
hi my name is Claire I'm 42 married to Kevin for 18 year and we have twin girls who are nearly 19.I was diagnosed with MS just over a year ago and I'm still trying to come to terms with it.i was diagnosed with fibromyalgia 12 year ago and since then I have also been diagnosed with other things like CFS,Hypermobility,Depression,B12/pernicious Anemia,Ibs,Caude Equine due to prolapsed disk and had surgery in 2014 to remove prolapse and to prevent further damage but I was left with numbness from my waste down to toes on left side and pain and nothing more can be done.i also have 4 prolapses up in my thoracic spine but can't have surgery as they are in a dangerous area and would need be significantly worse before they would operate.I don't work now unfortunately but I wish I could and would do anything to be able to get out and do some work as I hate not working and it gets me really down and depressed that I am not able to do much now.
