When I had my first MS attack, work was very stressful. I remember working late one night and feeling stiff and tired. I assumed it would just go away.
Living with MS is never dull. As well as all the symptoms, which can change on a daily basis, it feels like I constantly have to explain myself.
MS is complex and can cause many different symptoms, so it's not easy to diagnose. Early MS signs and symptoms are different for everyone.
