How easy is it to do the above on the NHS? Has anyone done it? What sort of time did you have to wait?
I am due to see the same consultant for the fourth time in less than a year in a couple of weeks. First couple of visits I did not like his manner, but at that point was diagnosed with Tranverse Myelitis and he was very confident it would be a one off episode.
l It wasn’t and an MRI during the second episode in December showed a new lesion on the brain. He was fairly dismissive, said likely MS of the benign and mild type (mobility issues due to loss of function of first one side of the body, then weakness in the other, nystagmus, twitches - mild?), no action taken to rule out other conditions, no support, but I could have a lumbar puncture if I want. Hmmm.
I have not recovered well since October despite two lots of steroids. An MS medical professional who worked with this person has advised me to request a change as my experience is common with this particular consultant. I have heard very negative things from other MS patients.
Not sure what to do as know my next visit will be frustrating again.
