hi kaza

have you been diagnosed?

or at least been seen by a neurologist?

if you haven’t then ask your gp to refer you to neurology.

if you have then ask your ms nurse.

No I haven’t been diagnosed yet waiting for my neuroligist appointment. X

You could ring the neuro`s secretary and ask how far down the list you are.

If you find it is a long time, then maybe think about going private, just for the initial consultation…further appointments and tests can be done on the NHS…that`s what I did due to a 10 month waiting list.

My GP has just wrote to the neuroligist last week I have looked up its going to be approx 12 weeks for my appointment.

There is no way I could go private. X

Hi Kaza

I was diagnosed 2 wks ago after a MRI scan confirmed I had MS, I also lost all feeling down my left side, they thought I had had a stroke. Having a really difficult 6 wks, a private consultation should be between £150 -£200. Well worth it. Hope you feel better soon .
