Customer Question
Hi, my name is...

Hi, my name is ***** ***** I was diagnosed with MS secondary progressive in 1975. At that time I had double vision which in 3 days progressed to a squint on one side. Effectively on eye was parked looking towards nose while other eye performed as usual. I was referred to hospital. I rested for a few days in bed and gradually the eye went back by itself. I underwent numerous tests and then a lumberpuncture. It took about 5 days to recover. So c. 2 weeks in hospital I was discharged. Bout a mth later I was called for diagnosis. SPMS. In 1990, having suffered a range of new symptoms I asked for an MRI scan. This proved the original Diagnosis. Everything quietened down but always left some weakness in the area of the problems. I have since had some eye tracking problems. However it often happens when I'm a passenger in a car. This last event (yesterday)I had a stiff neck and tension in shoulders & back. After 4 hours on road we got home and had an opportunity to sit in a comfortable chair with a cup of tea. Since then everything's back to normal. Lastly At age13 involved in car accident. Hospitalised with fractured skull. In 73 fell 12-14 feet onto concrete floor. Landed on feet and back and then bounced back of head on floor. Was able to get up and recovered in offices. No medical involvement at that time. Then in 75 the MS diag. Q. What was the cause off tracking failure durring 4 hr journey in car yesterday? Your thoughts would me much appreciated.
