Trauma of teenage years tougher for those coping with multiple sclerosis

CALGARY - It started when Levi Barron's right hand curled into a claw shortly after his 13th birthday.
Always laid-back, he told his mom that he'd just learn to write with the other hand and not to worry.
But the debilitating stiffness crept to his other hand, and soon the athletic hockey player was having trouble walking and even fell a few times.
It took four doctors and a stint in hospital, paralyzed from the waist down and so dizzy he couldn't open his eyes without vomiting, for Levi to finally get a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis.
