My mother was diagnosed with late onset MS about 5 years ago. Over the past 5 years me and my sister have seen her symptoms progrees and a scary rate. She now has to walk with a stick, has started forgetting words and having problems talking, experiencece grat fatigue and sometimes her legs are so bad she an’t even drive. Also she has started having pretty bad falls (just last week she fell and broke her hand).
I am an immunology student, and now that there are medications out there for treating this condition, and i’ve told her over and over that she should ask her doctor about them, but she insists that there’s nothing that anyone can do for her. infact, she hasn’t even been to see her doctor in 3 years.
Neither me nor my sister live at home, and i’m getting really worried about her, and she’s all on her own apart from the cat. She’s so tired that she doesn’t leave the house much, and she’s recently lost her job, so I’m worried that if something happens to her at home, no one will notice for a while.
Basicly, I need some advice about what me and my sister can do for her. How do we help her deal with something that she almost refuses to admit is a problem? Can anyone recomend possible treatments, and tell me how they helped (either medication or some other from of therapy)
any advise would be hugly welcome.
