I haven’t yet been diagnosed with MS or anything else for that matter but I hope I’m still ok to post? Just after a bit of advice really. I began having strange symptoms about a year ago, nothing major but I had a weakness in my left arm and a bit of a tremor also in my left arm. It lasted about 5 or 6 weeks and then just went away. I didn’t think much of it tbh I was only 23 so just put it down to a trapped nerve. Then in April it happened again, this time my left leg was also very weak with a pins and needles type sensation, and my chin and mouth felt very numb. I saw my GP who suspected a thyroid problem, after having blood tests that was ruled out so he referred me to the neurologist for an MRI in August. I then got a phone call in October to say they had an appointment in another hospital but I don’t drive and it was too far to use public transport so I waited until December and saw the neuro who agreed I needed an MRI and wanted to see me again in 3 months time to discuss the results. I got an appointment for May as there was a large waiting list.
My MRI is booked for Friday but I got a letter yesterday cancelling my appointment with the neuro in May and a new appointment has been made for September! I was just wondering if this is standard with neurology departments? And Does this mean I’ll have to wait until September to find out the results of Fridays MRI? I hate moaning about the NHS but it just seems like every appointment is taking much longer than it should. These past few days my balance has been a bit off which is how it started last time, if the symptoms do come back then do I just put up with them and tell my neurologist at my next appointment?
Sorry for rambling on lol just a bit fed up atm.
