Hi everyone. I really need some support right now, Ive been ill for over 4 years and my life has turned upside down, my family has a big history of ms and lots of people had told me that my symptoms were just like ms, so i went to the dr the other month and mentioned it. I honestly thought he was say god no nothing like that but instead he said it really does sound like it but u need tests to confirm it. He sent me for blood tests and reffered me to the hospital (ive also had 5 major falls down the stairs in 3 years), the 1st lot of blood tessts come back showing signs of ms. I had the hospital today and was there for over 3 hours, thank god i took a friend for moral support. When it came down to the talking to the dr (i saw 3 different people) she sat me down and said u already knew this was coming but werent sure but it is ms all the signs,symptoms and blood tests are pointing towards it but you need a mri to prove it now. The waiting list for a mri in my hospital is 4 weeks so ive got to go back and see her end of aug. I walked out of there and burst into tears.
In a way yes i kind of expected it but its a huge shock and im really upset. But my attitude is also that the sooner i can get on the right treatment i can fight this and i wont take it lying down.
