3 neuro app

Well had this for 11 weeks , double vision etc pins & needles Saw first neuro and brain MRI in 3 days , saw 4 possible lesions , suggested maybe ms and ordered spine mri 4 weeks later , then saw another neuro , who said poss 2 spine lesions and again mentioned ms. Gave me 5 day steroids and said will have to see ms neuro specialist well the appointment came through for a quick 2 weeks time Nervous of this appointment more than the others On the plus side vision etc has all improved… But I think ms is inevitably Scared now

Hi Gray,

If it is MS then the fact you are recovering well, albeit slower than you would like, really is a good sign. Try not to be too anxious about your appointment with the specialist, whatever will be will be, whether you worry or not. Keep your spirits up and concentrate on getting better. Good luck and let us know how you get on.

Hi Gray, When is the appointment?

You know IF it is MS you will cope ok. I know it doesn’t feel like you will, but believe me, you will. And we’ll all be here for you.

Let us know how it goes.

Take care and take it one day at a time,

Thank you all , just sometimes when I’m alone gets to me Appointment is next Monday … My 46 birthday … I can think of better things to be doing.

Thanks , just gets me a bit paranoid when I’m on my own And like you’ve said the way I’m feeling now is a million times better than I thought possible a few weeks ago Appointment is next Monday on my 46 birthday ( could think of better ways of spending it ) Thanks once again , take care Gray

Well been home sick for 12 weeks and been to new GP today ( as old one left practice) spoke to him about what’s going on and he said very encouraging how well I have responded to 5 day steroid course. Signed me off for another 2 months to get sorted and said will wait for neuro outcome. Is going to treat my high blood pressure now as its been high for so long Never had so much time off work in my whole life

Hi, I know how scary seeing new neuros is. I saw 13 in as many years!

Youve done well to get things moving quickly...........thats great!

I used to have panic attacks and get maudling when on my own at the beginning of my journey, back in the late 90s.

If you do get a diagnosis of MS, give yourself time to absorb it all. There is lots of good info from the MS Society. if you want, read that as apposed to googling the subject. Too much info of conflicting advice, can do your head in!

Happy Birthday for Monday, hun!

luv Pollx

Thanks yea head is spinning. Mood is up and down On the plus side my little girl breaks up from school soon for 6 weeks and ill get to be with her . First time ever as I’ve worked away for years.

How are you doing Gray? Happy birthday for yesterday. How was your appointment? Hope you’re ok.

Well sorry for late update Saw neuro very nice bloke ,made me touch my nose, walk in a straight line etc . All went very well , explained brain and spine MRI . Few on my brain and only one on my spine ,suspects I’ve had RRMS for years as I had numb legs years ago. Took further blood tests and is sending me for lumber puncture as a couple of things point to something else so wants to rule them out. Said if I haven’t heard results for LP in 4 weeks call him and will get me in to go through available treatment . Then I asked him straight to the point my future prognoses , and he said confident he can control it and I will go back to doing what I used to. But still waiting confirmed DX Gray
