Sorry this is most probably 2 subjects in one.
I just wanted a bit of advise, I had an MRI 7-8 weeks ago as I finally got my consultant to agree I should go onto a DMT, I have had at least 3 relapses since I was diagonals in Feb 2017 (well 3 lots of steroids), but wouldn’t consider it prior, but I had my notes reviewed through best doctors, which agreed with myself I fitted the criteria. Sorry I want to hit this hard and fast.
I have heard nothing back from my consultant or the nurses since the MRI, I was told originally the results would be back 4-6 weeks. Still nothing, consultant wanted MRI to see how active it was for what drug he would prescribe (another question should he suggest more than 1 and I chose or can he just say it’s this or nothing?).
I don’t feel I can talk to my nurses as it’s a phone line and they would call back but could take 4 days for them to reply (normally longer, for me - might be paranoid), When I was first diagnosed I was quite worried when my arm went cold and swelled etc… they said not the MS see my local doctor, my doctor just looked at it spoke to me took my pulse and said of course it’s the MS.
I don’t want to make trouble but all I ever got when I did see the consultant is I was happy and healthy and it’s just feelings / sensations.
What do I do now? should I chase the nurses again? am I doing the right thing?
Sorry bit feed up (might be the heat!! as my body doesn’t like it!)
Thanks for listening and any advise.
