I'm new to the forum.
My Mother was diagnosed with this illness 2.5 years ago. I'm sures hers is with myelopathy as although she has trouble with gripping/etc its mainly her legs that are effected. No pain, just numbness and unsteady, and her legs feel like her personal radiators.
After her diagnosis she stared taking vitamins and trying to do a little further of a walk each week (i.e. try and go to the shop in the next street 4 times a week.)
She seemed to be coping fine with it all to be honest (more like accepting of it really) but after a slip on the stairs two weeks ago its knocked her for six and feel like we are back to the begining again.
Does this illness go through 'flare ups' or is this just a quick degenaration and she'll be like this till the next 'flare up' where it will get worse again?
Also her bladder control has gotton worse over the past few weeks which is giving her more anxiety. Can this be remedied in anyway or is there something she can do to improve this? She is very thankful for Tena Lady!
Thanks for any help you can provide
