So part of the ‘Plan’ is deep breathing and yoga… I was previously diagnosed with PPMS and now it has been changed to SPMS …but what is doing my absolute fruit in is where the Dr makes a reference’ to my ‘20-pack year smoking history’ as being a possible cause of the brain lesions (written before the LP results) what he is trying to get at is that I used to smoke but I gave up 20 years ago (!!!) Please please please is there anyone out there who has had something similar where a Dr has mentioned smoking at all??
Also, during the exam he said that he thought I couldn’t raise my leg because of pain from my hip dysplasia - this he wrote on the report - no, it doesn’t hurt, it just won’t do what I tell it, it won’t move!! I could almost cry in fact I have cried, loads like we all do…and then to cap it all the letter continues ‘we suspect Ms F**** has MS’ Hello??? My name is not F****they are talking about somebody else.
Sorry guys, bad day…I have been waiting for this letter so that I can start the rest of my life off, you know? Yeah they have diagnosed ‘probably’ MS - lesions on spine a few on the brain and oligoclonal bands in the csf - sounds a lot like MS to me, but ho hum what about all those fags eh???
