Wow your right that is a micky take.
I went to the doctors they sent a letter to the nuro, I had to wait months but then I went back to the doctors on this time my wife had to get me a wheel chair to take me as I couldnt walk, he admittedmed me.
I was in for a week, had MRI found a lesion had Lumbar puncture whent wrong. Increased lynthicites.
Got tolds by nuro, fuzzy area on scan, then someone else said lesion then i asked and she said a small lesion, why she couldnt have said that to start with it beyond me.
Then month later i was admitted for 2 weeks, more scans, my spine scan was dont twice as i had involentry twitching the were both blury but was told it was readable whatever that means.
then my 3 month appointment turned into 9 months as this was the soonest which I have not reduced to the 14th of feb.
I work from home the wife and I run our own business but its a struggle to get motivated, I still have to work to earn money, I dont get sick pay, and any time off really does take its toll.
Mt feeling is the nuros dont like diagnosing MS or ME and as their is not definitive test poor people like us have to suffer until we are text book. They told me its unlikely to be MS as I only have 1 lesion, but the Macdonal criteria says 2 lesions or 1 lesion with 2 episodes well I would day for 8 months I only go tback to 70% health for at leasr 3 weeks so I would say something is up.
It feels like we are constantly pushed aside as they like to wait to see what happens. We the last 2 weeks, it seems anything close up gets blurry but it everything driving makes me feel sick I have to rest but it doesnt help. I was given pills to try but nothing worked but I will utilise my next appointment to really pin her down to what they plan on doing so I know for sure.
I really do feel for you, like I am sure 1000s of others do. we are not text book, they dont like diagnosing where as in america they would have stsrted treating you for MS almost immediately. This sucks
