Hi, I have been recently and suddenly diagnosed with MS. I have been suffering with balance problems, vertigo, numbness and difficulty walking. My symptoms have subsided over the last 3 weeks but I am still struggling with walking and my legs feel like jelly.
I am feeling fed up as I am normally a very active person and I’m struggling to work out what happens next? Do I recover, go back to work ( I’m a teacher) and wait for the next time? When can I expect to get further medical support, I can’t see my doctor for four weeks, I am waiting for another neurologist appointment but the hospital have yet to inform my GP of my diagnosis. The MS nurses are yet to get in touch ( I know they are rushed off their feet) and I have emailed my local MS branch but no reply.
I am in limbo.
I have fantastic support from family and friends but they are as in the dark as I am.
