Saw the neuro this morning for results of latest MRI. There are more lesions on my brain, the original lesions on my brain also appear to have grown larger. They scanned my spine too and there are spinal lesions as well.
So, I was given a formal diagnosis of RRMS. I think I’m shock really. I feel ok, a little stunned.
He asked me if I had any questions and I asked him a couple of things. Other than that he has sent me on my way to have a little think about DMDs and to do some research.
I don’t know. I think I had it in my head that he would give me a leaflet or a certificate or something, haha. Instead, I don’t really have anything. Seeing him again in 3 months. That will give me some time to get my head around things and to start perusing the DMD choices.
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think that the neuro has treated me badly or unfairly, I just was surprised that this huge bombshell is just delivered and then…nothing really.
Anyway, he was very nice, said I could call any time and has given me the details of the MS nurse should I want to talk to her.
No real symptoms at the moment apart from the usual sensory weirdness and fatigue.
So. Here I am, and I have MS
