Hi all, you have probably seen this or answered this kind of post before, so please forgive my asking. I have just been diagnosed with MS, I am 56 year old male, so as you can imagine it came as a bit of a shock as it was thought I suffered a stroke in 2014 but the MS doctor believes that I had my first MS attack in 2014 and not a stroke.
So as you can imagine I have lots of thoughts going through my head, when told about the MS the doctor wanted to know if I had any questions, but as you can imagine I like everybody can’t think of any at the time, not until I had time to digest what the doctor had told me.
So here goes:
At present I have relapsing remitting MS but the doctor has said this will change in 5 - 7 years to progressive is that the norm.
What help is out there wether that’s support or financial.
Is there certain questions I should ask the MS nurse.
I probably have other questions but I feel that’s enough for now as I don’t want to take much or effort of any ones time, any help would be much appreciated.
