Liz, Welcome to the ‘forum’ - wish it was in different circumstances. l have had MS - the secondary progressive type - for 31yrs. l was 35 when it started. At first my GP would not tell me what he suspected - as - and this is very true - many of us have one ‘episode’ and then it goes and quite often never rears its ugly head again. And it was in his experience, that it was better not to say as the stress of knowing can exacerbate and make matters worse. Lovely, kind man - and l do understand his reasoning - now of course GP’s do have to tell patients straight away - medical ethics. lts a lot to take on - and the fear and uncertainty does not help our condition. The very first thing you must do is get your daughter to take vitamin d3 and vitamin b12 - just google vitamin d3 deficiency ms and the same with vitamin b12 deficiency ms. l take 10.000ius of d3 daily - and l get mine from amazon -healthy origins softgels 360 -10.000ius about £15 for a years supply. Chemists and health shops do not stock the high dose and at this competitive price.
The more you read up on MS - the better equipped you will be to help your daughter. lt is also important that her child has vitd3 as well - 1000ius is for small children. And take it yourself.
GP’s Neuros do not seem to know a great deal about MS - So you will have to become your own expert. Good neuros are very much a post-code lottery. l have never seen one that specialises in ms - and have never had access to a ms nurse - but they are around- just not in my area.
Even if her diagnosis is not MS - the vitamin d3 is still important.
You will get lots of support on this - and other forums - so don’t feel alone. Always someone ready to ‘listen’ to you and help.
