Unfortunately my husband just got diagnosed with MS on Friday ( he is only 33). The diagnosis has come very quickly and seemingly out of the blue. He had a MRI scan for some altered hearing issues (ordered by an ENT Dr) which showed up some white spots. After referral to a neurologist a brain and full body scan- there were also lesions on his spine ( he passed the evoked potentials and EMG).
My husband is also exeriencing numbness in both legs (he can still walk) and had a similar episode two years ago and earlier this year some numbness in his feet. On this basis the neurologist has made a diagnosis. This has all happeed within the last month!
Aside from supporting the emotional side of things, I want to make sure he is taking the right next steps health-wise. His symptons are pretty mild right now and we would love to keep it that way.
Any recommendations for the best DMD? I have heard there is a new drug BG12(?) available that might be good.
Also any recommendations for the best Lodnon NHS neurologist to be referred to - the diagnosis was on BUPA but we are not covered for medication so need to move to the NHS. We are based in London and have heard that Dr Rob Brenner is good- any other recommendations?
Grateful for your help with this. We are both very fearful for the future and want to do everything we can to get on top of this disease.
