I was diagnosed with MS in May 2013 at the age of 49. It was suggested at a specialist centre that it was probably PPMS because of my age but it could be a year before they could say. I had a third MRI in September and saw my Neuro today, she says there has been new activity and would like me to see another Neuro who apparently is more of a specialist of MS. I asked if she could say which type of MS but she said she wasn’t sure, the other Neuro might be better placed to say. I am a little frustrated, I am not on any medication although my symptoms are not bad compared to what some people have to deal with. I am concerned that if I delay treatment what will the effects be.
How do they make a diagnosis of the type MS? If it is PPMS what medication should I be asking for?
thanks for any help.
