Hi everyone, got diagnosed with remitting relapsing ms today, did have a lp and a blood test, and spine and head MRI, plus an MRI was used as a reference from four years ago when another neurologist said I definitely did not have ms, even though they could see leisons. Anyway I’m rambling. Whatever the neurologist said earlier seems like a blur, but have a few areas of concern/questions I’d be keen to get feedback on if possible .
So I got told I need to be referred to a ms nurse to decide treatment, but this could take a month, then they say it’s good to start treatment asap. Is waiting a month too long, is this normal?
Then the neurologist was asking if I have any further symptoms, I mentioned I have a muscular pain in my calf, he then said that sounds like another relapse. Is every ache and pain going to be seen as a relapse?!
Finally, what worries me most is I am about to have my first child, due in August I am just so worried I am going to be limited with what I can do with him or her and that I won’t be able to support my wife. Just seems to be so much unknown at this time!
