Hi all you lovely people.
Hope you are all well and coping in your own ways with all that life throws at you. I am not diagnosed though have had all sorts of symptoms over the years.
I wanted to ask a what would you do kind of piece of advise as I am genuinly at a loss or perhaps just indecisive!
My issue is that I was referred to a neurologist who purportedly specialises particularly in MS and I did notice on my GP screen, it says ’ probably MS’ though of course only a shoulder specialist, a couple of physios and a couple of GPs have come to that conclusion. Anyway sorry I am waffling… My dilemma is that I speak at conferences here and there and am speaking at a relatively big one on March 22nd. I signed a contract for this last year as it is at a University and they like to do things formally. Sod really seems to have a way of playing with me as of all the days in all the year, I am also seeing the neurologist for the long awaited appointment! Ironically this happened once before and I put off the neuro (and also a uro appointment) and hence, have waited another few months.
Soooo do I confess to the conference organiser that this is going on and risk this being put around to delegates, parents, professionals that I speak to or just yet again, postpone the neuro appointment? Annoyingly, my arms have started playing up again, albeit not as badly as last time and I am having great trouble with an ankle too so I would like to see someone instead of popping pain killers constantly.
I know it is ultimately my choice but as I tell no one about this stuff, I have no one to ask that knows how important this appointment may be.
Thanks for ‘listening’ one and all and I send vibes constantly to you all
