I was diagnosed in June of having CIS (transverse myelitis),im meeting my ms specialist Oct 5. This is the first time i will have met this guy having been seen by and diagnosed by another doctor. I spent a week in hospital and had the usual treatments ie steroids,spinal tap and MRI scans brain and spine which found lesions in brain and spine. Im in the army so see my medical officer every week and as far as hes concerned its ms and im going to be discharged from the army (happy about that) full medical pension im coming up to 52 only 3 years to serve.
Now im still walking with difficulty and have started getting pains and tingling in my right arm plus i still have pretty much all the problems that got me the original diagnosis, and sorry here is the six million dollar question will my ms specialist now call it ms and prescribe me dmd and a nurse or sit on his hands and wait.
Sorry for the rambling but i know there are some very experienced people on here with years and years of suffering and i was hoping to tap into some of your experience.
Kind Regards Iain
