Hi all! I’m new to this forum stuff (and the UK!). My husband and I just moved here from the US, and right before we left I had an episode of optic neuritis along with other MS associated symptoms. I was in and out of the hospital for a month, MRI showed two small lesions, but the doctors didn’t think it was sufficient to diagnose MS. Iv’e been feeling great for about two months now (at which point I convinved myself I did not and never would have MS). But of course, lately I have been feeling odd. My whole body feels restless, my eyes are hurting the way they did when I had optic neuritis, and my vision does this weird thing that I can’t explain, but is definately not normal. So now that I have been forced out my denial, I had a question for you guys.
How is NHS with treating/diagnosing MS. In the US you always here that socialize medicine is horrible…blah blah blah. But given that I have not had any expeirence with it (nor have all the people who think they know what they are talking about), I figured I would ask people who are actually dealing with it. Iv’e heard its excellent with a lot of immune disorders, but I havn’t heard from anyone with MS or who is in the “limbo” stage.
I would really appriciate some feedback!
