New to NMO

My story starts in August 2017. I had a burning sensation in my upper torso. Thought it was the start of shingles, but never broke out in the rash. Week later right leg went numb, went to the doctor he set up a nerve testbyo br run the following week.  By the next Monday both legs were numb and hands were hurting.  Spent a month in the hospital.  Luckily the steriods and plasma exchange saved my arms and hands.  The therapy that I have recieved in Sept., October and November has restored movement to my left leg and partial movement to my right leg.  I still cannot walk. I am very fortunate to have to sisters that were willing to take me in.  Hopefully out patient therapy will get me walking again
