So I was meant to have an MRI on Wednesday but the snow was very bad in southern Scotland, we couldn’t get to the hospital!
It’s been rearranged but I have to wait ages again. Very sad today as back in limbo and i’ve had new symptoms. I have not been diagnosed with anything and the MRI would have been my first diagnostic test.
My partners noticed I have had some speech difficulties and forgetting simple words. And bladder problems. I have spoken with my neuro about new symptoms and he said they are consistent with his previous preliminary diagnosis of an ‘inflammed central nervous system’ (suggested because of symptoms and examination) and we will wait for rescheduled MRI.
I am a young stay at home mum with two small boys, so struggling with it all - I have always been fit and healthy before. My partner works full time, no family live near-by. It is all taking a long time to get a diagnosis, get help and I am struggling with coping emotionally. My partner has suggested paying for an MRI to speed things up. Not sure if that will help?
Just posting here to vent.
