On February 8, 2013, I was at a conference related to my job when I realized that the tingling in my legs were not caused just from stress. After the conference, three days later, I went to a family clinic to try to get some relief from the now nagging and tingling pain in my legs. The doctor on call did some blood work but could not provide a valid answer to what was going on with my body. She gave me a shot (steroids) and sent me home. I was scheduled to attend another conference that following Monday, but I woke up the next morning and could not move the left side of my body. I was scared and my husband rushed me to the local ER where they immediately started running tests. After nine hours of tests and waiting, the local physician stated that he could not pinpoint what was directly wrong with me but the paralysis was related to something going on with my spinal cord. The local hospital made a referral and I was transported to the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson, MS. After reviewing my records and running another round of tests and MRIs, the team of doctors said that although very rare, I may have Transverse Myelitis.
