    diagnosis

    Sorry that you have this disease. I was diagnosed last year when I was 34 yrs old. I have to say the doctors that diagnosed me said that since I was young I'll be better off. Being young does NOT make the progression faster. Don't focus on death... focus on living your life to the fullest...

    spasticity

    I describe it like my muscles are so tight that they feel like they are shrinking up. Each morning it's hard to walk cause they are so tight and it takes a while to get them loosened up.
