Default Re: Good days and bad days

Hello - From Ottawa too.

Sorry for your Mom-in-law. I was recently diagnosed and am in early stages. I can echo your Mom's comment. Some days I feel great (and yes - almost "normal") and other days not so great. My left side is most affected - one day my hand will ache and the next it's fine - but is getting increasingly thinner and weaker. It's very strange - sometimes I feel pain in my foot and when that eases - pain returns in my calf muscle. The only consistent things for me are hand weakness, rubbery legs and fatigue. I get tired very quickly and nap most days.

I hope this information is helpful and since we are in the same city - if I can be of further assistance, let me know. We're all in this together even if we're experiencing this terrible disease in different ways.
