But in 2015, Stephanie started noticing weakness in her legs. It began around Easter when she was visiting her brother’s family. Stephanie was jumping on the trampoline with her niece when she noticed it felt like her legs wouldn’t support her.
“When I first started experiencing symptoms, I just thought I needed to get to the gym,” says Stephanie. “I never in a thousand years thought I needed to go to the doctor.”
Stephanie was walking on a treadmill the first time it happened. She stepped off the treadmill and fell to the floor.
“My legs just Jello-ed,” she says.
After three more embarrassing falls on the treadmill, Stephanie decided to leave the gym.
