Thanks John. Everything I read about Devic's disease says it affects the eyes also. I was diagnosed in March if last year. Never had a problem with my eyes. Have all the other symptoms. Is there a difference in Devic's and Transverse Myelitis.
Hi Kandyd. I was diagnosed in March. At that time I couldn’t walk. I stayed in hospital over a month. Had Plasma Exchanges and steroid IV. Also physical therapy. I am taking azathioprine to stop future attacks. Gabapentine and Baclofen for nerve pain. I went from wheelchair to a walker and now I can walk without an aid. Not perfect and I do get tire really fast, so I still use an aid if I’m going out. Praying that you will also be able to get out the wheelchair.
I had an MRI and Spinal Tap. My walking is really bad, muscles are tight, burning pain in my back and stomach. Can’t do much because I get tire fast. The spasm are not bad now but my lower legs always feel cold. I was diagnosed in March. At that time I couldn’t walk at all. My right side was real weak. But with medication and physical therapy I am doing much better.
