I am awaiting diagnosis and am due to see the neurologist on 19th June.
I was told by an A&E doctor recently, after he conferred with a neuro consultant, that I am probably facing a diagnosis of MS.
I have described my symptom history at length in previous posts.
Today while at work, a colleague asked me how I was doing at the moment, and then proceeded to tell me she didn’t wonder if it wasn’t all stress related.
Stupidly this has upset me. I have felt for a while now that at least a couple of my colleagues think that I am imagining my symptoms. I think maybe on some level I am afraid that it might be true.
I also realise after years of having no explanation for my symptoms that I am just as afraid of being told it is NOT MS as being told that it is. Not knowing what is wrong with me has now become even more of a dread than facing up to having MS.
Does any of this make sense?
