About me

Gender Female
Location Cardiff, United Kingdom
Introduction I was diagnosed with a highly active relapsing remitting MS in June 2011 at the age of 34 after suffering several episodes of tingles in feet, legs, arms and hands over a few years. The diagnoses was finally made after an episode of optic neuritis which resulted in almost total sight loss in one eye for a period of about 12 weeks, followed by painful arm spasms and all over tingles and numbness - and all while pregnant with my first child. This blog is to record how I cope with the medication alemtuzumab (also known as Campath and Lemtrada) which I had in November 2011. To see how I coped during and the immediate weeks after getting my first dose, go to November 2011 in the blog archive.
