Saw my GP earlier this year mainly with balance issues so they referred to Neurology.
Saw the Neurologist who after, a chat and a few tests during the face to face, sent me for a MRI, results of which showed lesions and he thought it was MS so he referred me for a contrast MRI, Lumber Puncture and to a MS specialist consultant.
Had the tests and, while waiting for the final confirmation, I joined this forum to get an idea of where things can go as I had very little knowledge of MS but have found both this site and the forum a great help.
Saw the consultant on Friday who confirmed that I have PPMS so I have now joined the club.
Obviously I am on a steep learning curve at the moment but I hope that in the future I will be able to spread some of my knowledge and experience on to others
All the best.
