Don't know what happens now


My head is in a spin so please excuse the waffle.

I went to my GP last week because I had been feeling dizzy for about a week. I thought I had an ear infection. I also mentioned other niggles, pain in my left arm and leg, devastating fatigue, problems with my left eye and the fact my left leg sometimes won’t do what I want it to and I have to lift it.

My GP checked my vision (I have double vision if I try and concentrate on something) and my reflexes. She then said it sounded like MS and she referred me to a neurologist. I had never considered anything was seriously wrong and I have been left reeling from this.

I don’t know where I go from here. I want to pretend nothing is happening but I can’t think about anything else. How do you carry on with life as normal? All I do at the moment is think and eat. I can’t make myself do anything.
