My wife (30) was diagnosed with MS several weeks ago, following a serious case of optic neuritis, and an MRI. I am now learning everything I can about MS, and am grateful to have found this forum.
My first priority, at the moment, is getting access to a lumbar puncture at the NHS—we don’t have private insurance, and of course now there is no way to purchase it. So I am learning everything I can about navigating the NHS (I have only been in the UK for a few years). Does anyone have advice on getting access to a LP in a timely fashion, getting access to treatment more generally (for example, if you feel your neurologist isn’t very good), and, if you were diagnosed around age 30, advice on living with this?
