PPMS stripped away the surface of my life, and left behind a new one not worse or better, but definitely different. I'm not good at very much, but I'm great at surviving. Marrying my wife was the one thing I did extremely well. She's the wonder of my life. And I write, that's what I do.

MS diagnosis and Covid

I’m new here and here is a bit about me. 12 years ago I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and CFS, although I likely have had it since I was about 12. Then five years ago I developed new symptoms and my fibro dr said that the new symptoms didn’t fit into FM or CFS and looked more like MS. My family dr (GP) agreed and sent me for some tests and to an MS clinic. I saw two Dr’s at the clinic, one said I had MS and the other said I didn’t. I have spent the last few years trying to get an official diagnosis, my GP sent me to another neurologist (fall 2021), she sent a long list of symptoms pointing to MS and wanted his official diagnosis but he didn’t care about any symptoms or what my GP sent along. All he cared about was that I can’t feel my feet/toes and spent the whole appointment doing different tests trying to prove I was faking the lack of feeling. Needless to say my GP and I were annoyed and we are starting over again. Was going to start the whole process January 2022 but I got Covid was sick until end of March with long Covid and then got Covid again in May, I’ve been vaccinated and had a booster (weak immune system) I have also fallen twice (down stairs & in bathtub) since March. Covid has made all my symptoms worse and I can’t seem to catch a break. I’m not sure what I’m looking for here, maybe some advice.

Has anyone else had Covid make symptoms worse?

Hi, my name is ALTurck1959. I'm here because I am looking for other people with MS too. So that I may chat with them and how they are doing, and what works for them, and what doesn’t.
