Hi--I am 60 yrs old and have lived alone for over 10 years. I was diagnosed with MS 3 yrs ago, and my life has been a mess ever since. The trauma of it wasn't the MS, it was the total lack of support or med. assistance (long story). Now that I'm on Medicare I have a primary doc appt next Tuesday, and my symptoms are so bad I don't want to be in my body. I just can't hold everything up anymore! The last 2 days I have had burning spasms in kmy pecs and upper back, only relieved by Tramadol and a shallow magnesium salt bath. I don't even know how to talk to people and when I do (over the phone) I hyperventilate. We're talking isolation here. I have developed severe agoraphobia. I just want somebody to hold me and help me out. Every day feels traumatic cause I don't know what's going on.
