"There's a lot of information out there about RRMS, and some of it can be confusing," says Walker. "But it's important not to give up -- it took almost a year of working with my neurologist before I found the routine that worked best, and now that I have found my groove, I stick with it and encourage others to do the same."
About Clay Walker Walker was diagnosed with RRMS, the most common form of MS, in 1996 at the age of 26 with symptoms that included tingling, numbness and facial spasms. The diagnosis of this lifelong and unpredictable disease came at a pivotal time in his life, as he had recently finished recording his fourth album and his oldest daughter was just born. Over the course of his country music career, Walker has sold over 11 million albums, has had 11 number one hit singles, and achieved four Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) platinum and two gold certified albums.
About Relapsing-Remitting Multiple SclerosisMultiple Sclerosis (MS) is a chronic, often disabling disease that attacks the central nervous system. Symptoms may be mild, such as numbness in the limbs, or severe, such as paralysis or loss of vision. The progress, severity, and specific symptoms of MS are unpredictable and vary from one person to another. In the U.S. today, there are approximately 400,000 people living with MS. In relapsing-remitting MS, the most common form of the disease, a person experiences attacks (also called relapses or exacerbations) of worsening neurologic functioning followed by periods of remission in which partial or complete recovery occurs.
