Emma’s History

Emma my eldest daughter has been diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease this comes on the back of a very long period with no diagnosis.

Originally the only symptoms she presented was sore legs: this they put down to her not tying her shoes properly.

From there after almost a year of fighting and losing more and more strength in her legs the doctors finally admitted that she had a neurological problem.

At first they thought it was Guillian Barre Syndrome so there then followed a year of treatments, once a month to receive immunolobulin at Wishaw General Hospital where she received the very best of care.

A year down the line and after showing no real improvement Emma went through a battery of further tests and it was confirmed that she was indeed suffering from Motor Neurone  Disease.
