Today, I finally got a diagnosis and the consultant confirms it is MS.
As well as inflammation found on my spinal cord, I have a couple of spots on my brain, and the lumbar puncture came back positive for the relevant proteins.
I’m going to be referred to an MS specialist nurse who will arrange all the appropriate meds for me. I’ll be started on Beta Interferon (self administered injections… eeek!) and something for the discomfort and pain caused by the nerve damage in my legs.
The MS support centre for Cornwall (The Merlin Centre) is centre 5 minutes away, so that’s a bonus!
So FINALLY I have answers! No it’s not good news. It’s actually pretty shite news. But at least I can move forward at last!!!
