I’m currently under investigation / watch and wait for MS.
So I woke up and 6:30 and started the day as normal. Around 8 the room started spinning for at least 45 minutes. Immediately after half of my face went numb followed by my whole arm. I called my GP and was told to go to A&E. The initial thought was a stroke, fair enough…although one savvy junior doctor suggested that it wasn’t and it was probably linked to the inflammation in either my spine or brain. Ironically she was the first one I saw and could have saved me so much time!! Alas, four doctors, 5 hours and a CT scan later they decided that it was related to the inflammation and decided to call my neurologist to decide the next course of action. An hour later I was told that I shouldn’t have gone to A&E and should have contacted my MS team and specifically my MS nurse!!! I’m fuming as I was never told about any MS nurse or MS team. I told the A&E doctors all the time that I was happy to go home and contact my neurologist, but they didn’t want me to.
Anyway, apparently my MS nurse (which I don’t have) will be calling me tomorrow. What should I expect from this conversation?
Sorry for the rant… I just hate all of this…
