I used to run all the time but over the last 4 years the distance inexplicably had to get shorter and shorter. For the last year I have not attempted to run at all and then I discovered I had MS from a brain scan taken by my neurologist.. MS has made my right leg weak and my coordination bad, and then there is the heat sensitivity and all the other confusing symptoms. Has anyone managed to cope with this and still run ?
I do not have MS, but have a friend who does (non-runner), which is why I remembered your post. Today, Women's Running Magazine posted on Facebook:
"Our running goddess of the day is Julie Rookard. "I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis seven years ago," says Julie. "At that point, I did not even own a pair of running shoes, but I read that the stronger you are going into this disease, the faster you will pull out of your exacerbations. Fast forward 7 years, I ran my first half marathon!"
In case you hadnt seen on your own FB page, I thought there may be a way for Women's Running Magazine to put you in touch with Julie.
Have they put you on interferon? Take flax oil. Learn T'ai Chi or yoga. It is more important now to work on balance and strengh on your weaker side. Kavi Coral soap will help with the weird heat thing. Leave the bathroom door open when you shower. Get a small window air unit for bedroom.
