I was diagnosed with RR MS 20 years ago, and my main continuing symptom has been fatigue, though others have come and sometimes even gone over the years. I’ve been taking Amantadine for about 5 years following a period of such bad fatigue that I had to take 3 months off work. Since then, the fatigue has continued to get steadily worse, and although my employer has been very helpful and I’ve cut my hours, I think that the time has come to stop. I’m a member of the Teachers Pension Scheme (I’m a lecturer) and they have an ill health retirement scheme. Back of an envelope calculations suggest that we’d have just enough to live on if TPS accepts a claim. I am not currently off sick, but I’m not sure how much longer I can carry on.
I would be really grateful for any advice anyone has.
