“We know what you have. It’s Transverse Myelitis,” the doctor said right before walking out of Kim’s room, leaving her all alone to wonder what the heck had just happened.
Four days earlier, Kim Harrison woke up and noticed her foot was numb and tingly. ‘No big deal,’ she thought, ‘I must’ve pinched a nerve or something at work yesterday.’
When the feeling began creeping up her leg, she reluctantly agreed to get checked out. At the urgent care they thought Kim was having a stroke since she was showing symptoms of paralysis on her right side. By noon, she was numb from the waist down. Still, Kim didn’t believe it was that serious.
“The next morning, my left leg started doing the same thing,” Kim recounts. “Until then I was joking about having to even go the ER for a pinched nerve. I couldn’t believe they admitted me for the night. They had no idea what was going on, then on Sunday I got the diagnosis. The doctor left and I didn’t know what Transverse Myelitis was. My sister-in-law had to google it.”
