MS specialist appointment

Have been waiting for this since half-way through August. Have received it today for the 28th of March!

I am furious that I have to wait so long as this delay just keeps deferring my diagnosis which the first Neuro I saw said was fairly certain but she wanted it rubber-stamped by a specialist.

I really would like to leave limbo land now, I’ve had enough! I think I’m having one of those days…

Hi, just to saying, thinking about you and hope you get a diagnosis when you see the specialist. Cheryl:)

Hi, good luck with your appointment and hope you get a diagnosis. Cheryl:)

Hi Teresa.

That really sucks letdown

 

Can you get your GP to intervene, or maybe the original neuro?

Well I’m going to try the GP first and see if she can help as she’s been really great.

Here’s hoping!

Hi Teresa.

 

I was waiting months for a MRI scan, the reason given, the scanner was being used for people with life threatening illness, which was fair comment. Once I had my MRI, things moved at a better pace. Had my lumber puncher, not to long after, but it was then a further twelve months before I was given the diagnoses of PPMS. That was back in 2003.

Take care, hope you get some action soon.

I know its going to be a bad day when I get out of bed and miss the floor, today is such a day.

Thanks Chris, the waiting gets excruciating doesn’t it? By the way I too am probably PPMS!
