Amy Lynn

“Go getter”

Amy LynnACT resident Amy is an avid young traveller and at twenty years of age followed her dreams of teaching English as a second language in Thailand.  While enjoying a lovely working holiday this amazing woman was suddenly struck down with complete blindness in her left eye and a crippling headache.  

On approaching a local hospital for answers, she found significant communication difficulties due to lack of English speaking staff.  Following an MRI, lumbar puncture and a diagnosis of optic neuritis Amy was unfortunately provided with little explanation of this condition.  A quick choice to board the next flight home to Australia and family and a month of rest resulting in her health soon returning to normal.

Four months later, Amy experienced disturbing symptoms of slurred speech, brain fog, dizziness and vision disturbance.  Efficiently, an MRI resulted in a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis– the most common chronic illness of young Australians.

Having looked at all the options available to move forward, Amy has chosen to take the health and wellness approach to management of her chronic illness at present and is now living a very busy life as a qualified life coach.

The MS Ambassador Program highly recommends MS Ambassador Amy as a speaker who is a young go-getter and enthusiastically looking forward to sharing her motivating story of “chronic illness at a young age” and her travels through the world and journey through health and wellness with her audiences.
