One day, almost 10 years ago, Christine Boutros felt something she will never forget.
She remembers it like it was yesterday: “You know when you sit on your leg for too long and it feels tingling? I thought it would pass but it didn’t,” she explained.
A few months later, Boutros, at the age of 45, was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS), an autoimmune disease of the central nervous system. “It was kind of surreal,” she said.
