wish someone had answered this for you….I had that bear hug feeling for several years. It comes and goes now after 7 years. I hope yours stays away permanently. The numbness and such is normal considering you are so very early in your journey. Some days it may feel really bad, others it may seem as if you are almost back to normal. Remember that each day your body is busy healing, rebuilding, and it will take time for this to all fall into place. No one can say how long it will take, how much recovery you will have, it is all so very individual. Also, mild cases can be worse in the grander scheme of things than being paralyzed–a bad case. You may very well have little to no residuals once you recover, something positive to look forward to! I really hope everything goes well for you and that you heal quickly and completely.

take care of yourself and remember to rest, listen to your body, and never give up
