my husband and i was camping with grandkids on spring break on the 23rd of march of this year i was standing in the camper when all of a sudden pain hit me in my lower back and it was so horrible i lost the use of both legs. and they had to call an amblance tocome and get me. i stayed in the hospital in for 5 days them giving me steroids thru iv. the pain was still very bad. i had 5 doctors and a person that came in and did nerve tests on my left leg come in and not one could tell me what it was. i left there and went to another hospital and they sent me to another dr. he said it was transverse myelitis. by that time i had use of my right leg and was walking with a walker. the pain was still very bad. he said i had a mile case of it. thank the good lord . i am undergoing therphy and do a lot of exercise thru them as of today thank the lord, i am walking by myself, and i can do some chores around the house. i am so sorry to hear that your husband is so bad. but dont give up god is our healer and he can restore his health. i dont know how rare this stuff is but i know its painful.
