Shelby’s Story

#Voices4FND

I am 23 years old, diagnosed October 2020 after an accident at work had me laid up off sick, I subsequently lost my job due to the inability to contonue my job as a manual metalworking machinist. Following this I had pain in my shoulder, numbness in my hands, arms and face, after developing tremors in my arm and my leg bouncing whilst trying to walk my physio requested I see a neurologist. 

I have a diagnosis and no way of knowing if I’ll be back to my old self, after a 3 month remission the symptoms have returned and all my progress seems lost! But I will be me again and not let this condition stop me living and enjoying my life!
