Just been diagnosed with MS on Monday, and new on here.
Initially I went for a MRI to have my optical nerve checked prior to an operation, I was referred to a neurologist for what they called an "incidental finding" which turned out to be white spots. a contrast MRI, blood tests and finally and by far the worst test a lumbar pucture later and I was given the diagnosis. I had 8 months to get myself prepared for the worst but all the preparation in the world would not have helped when the words came out of the neurolgists mouth.
At least now i know what I have I can start to deal with it and move on, its just this initial few days that im struggling with at the moment, a total lack of understanding mixed with a feeling of emptyness and sadness is how im feeling at the moment.
just looking at the other posts on here at it certainly looks like there is a lot of support about and also a lot of understanding people too.
heres to the future.
