Congratulations and commiserations! Congratulations because you know what’s wrong and commiserations because the dx is a lots to take in.
Firstly let me tell ou it’s not the end of the world. Ms can’t kill you and we go on to live happy and fulfilled lives.
There are a few legalities that you wil have to take care of.
You will need to inform the Dvla of your condition. They have a medical form online which is quite straight forward. They write to your consultant who will ok you to drive and issue you with a 3 year licence. Don’t be alarmed this is just to make sure your ms doesn’t affect your safety to drive.
Secondly, you need to check all your insurance policies. Mortgages often have to have critical illness cover and ms is one of the listed illnesses. They often have a time limit in the small print so if you have any policies check them ASAP.
Finally to answer your question on medication, I take amatriptyline which works well for me, you’ll find what suits you as we are all different.
Welcome to the club and please don’t panic, life carries on and for me, it’s better because I appreciate more what I have got
Best of luck with your ms nurse,
