I think I spelled that right.:headache: Anyway, I am looking for some other folks who have this. It is sort of like MS in that your myelin lining is attacked by your own immune system, but it only effects the spinal cord and not brain and has different antibodies. Don't know a lot about it yet as I was just tentatively diagnosed this morning. I am in a bit of hiding in my own place not wanting to talk to anyone or deal with life stage right now. But I am also looking for some online support so if you know of any good sites please let me know.
Thanks!
