Hi, new here. So i hope i’m doing this correctly and this post is allowed.
Basically caring for a friend who hasn’t actually been given the MS diagnosis but has all signs pointing towards.
-Uncontrollable shakes and numbness
-Loss of vision progressively becoming worse
-Mobility problems mainly on her right side including sometimes losing most of the function of her foot which results in it being dragged slightly
-On a lot of pain meds
-Problems with speech and finding the correct words, the list literally goes on.
What brings me to writing this post is complicated and i will try my best to keep it short.
Her consultant told her this was not MS and it would go away and wouldn’t happen again, this was 5 year ago and we are now 5 years on with the symptoms becoming worse each time she has an episode and ends up hospitalised several times per year. It would appear this is a battle of the Doctor not wanting to admit he was wrong therefore being less than forthcoming with help leaving her in limbo without any official diagnosis or any sign of a resolution in sight. She has tried seeking other professionals opinions who all are in favour of the MS diagnosis but this always ends up going back through Doctor Ming and never seems to go any further. It is like he is blocking her from moving forwards.
We are hoping someone can help us with how to get an official diagnosis and help her move on with her life before she is unable to.
