I have been having neurological issues since 2003. I started to have difficulty speaking. My speech was slurred like I had been intoxicated. Then after 5 years my legs were stiff. I played a lot of tennis and I could not run or serve and volley. My gait got worst as time went on then I began falling. Now balance is so bad I have to use a walker.

I have had four EMGs, four MRIs and a lumbar puncture all results were pretty normal. So I got a diagnosis as possible PLS.
