So I first posted about 3/4 weeks ago… Telling my life story and asking for some help and some lovely people posted back giving me a kick up the bum to go see the Dr, so I made an appointment which I attended she was very nice and understood my concerns but assured me that I was probably getting ahead of myself she would run some bloods and have a look of my med notes and I was to go back last Monday to get results and see where things were!!! Well I wasn’t prepared for what came next and it’s taken me a week to get my head around it!!!
Verbatim this is what she said… Mrs ??? I have taken a good look at your med notes and have consulted with a colleague and it is our opinion that you have benign MS which may now be remitive relapsing MS, I have booked you a referral with a specialist which will be sent to you directly, do you have any questions??? WTF do you think!!! (Sorry for the expletive)
She went on to say that they had come to this conclusion using the McDonald critirea and that this is what the consultant will use along with an MRI if he thinks another one is nessaccery as I had one back in 2000 that showed inflammation and the symptoms that I have had in resent years should be enough to give a conclusive diagnosis… Is this true?? I have been reading up on it and I’ve just confused myself so much…
My hubby is serving away at the moment and I don’t want to tell my family at the mo I have told a close friend and all of you now… What is happening to me I feel like my whole world has just fallen apart!!
