From Diagnosis to Hope: A Journey with MS

Healthy Aging Podcast

Jan 8 2024 • 30 mins

“When we got back from vacation my symptoms got more intense.” In April 2023, Mia Hardman explained that half of her body couldn’t regulate temperature. Hot felt cold and vice versa! She experienced numbness on the left side of her body, couldn’t lift her arm, and by the time she saw Dr. Joshua Stone, she was dragging her leg to walk.

Dr. Stone explained that Multiple Sclerosis is an autoimmune disease affecting the nervous system. It can affect your brain and spinal cord. He went on to explain that each MS attack can present differently for each patient.  While the attacks can be dramatic, he strongly recommended not dismissing anything that is going on that is out of the norm for your body. There is no cure for MS right now, but it is highly treatable.

Mia was very vulnerable in this episode describing all the emotions she experienced, thinking life was over, and enduring some painful tests. But with the calm demeanor of Dr. Stone and his positivity, she knew she was in good hands. He was able to diagnose Mia and get her on the road to recovery! Mia shared that to help her body, she cut out sugar and is up to running 2-4 miles daily. “A body in motion stays in motion.” That’s Mia’s new motto. Listen to the episode to hear Mia’s full story and all the information Dr. Stone shared about Multiple Sclerosis.
