We all know that ‘Multiple Sclerosis’ translates as ‘multiple scars’ due to the many lesions left on the brain and spinal cord. But flip a chip, who knew just how ‘MULTIPLE’ the symptoms of this ridiculous disease could be?! What other condition can give you chronic pain and balance issues and paralysis and slurred speech and muscle spasms and never-ending pins and needles and blindness / blurred vision / optic neuritis and debilitating fatigue and numbness and incontinence and heat intolerance and dysphagia and sexual dysfunction and memory loss and drop foot and depression and hypersensitivity and a funky walk or indeed no walk. Am I missing anything? Undoubtedly. MS can affect EVERYTHING.
