My diagnosis was last June, so I have been living with this for a while. Mine started with leg pain during the night and then a fall due to foot drop in June 2018. After that, I noticed a lot of fatigue just hitting golf balls and going for a walk. I almost got surgery for spinal stenosis, but fortunately I had a visit to a neurologist about a year ago and she recommended the EMG test and putting off the surgery. I can still walk and climb stairs with difficulty, but mostly use a rollator to get around these days. Now we are considering how to deal with the next chapter in this journey.
