Just before Christmas I had a bit of an episode. It didn’t last long, but scared me, and when a few days later I was still feeling dizzy and nauseated I decided to visit the GP. When I mentioned having felt weakness in my left arm I was referred to the stroke clinic at the local hospital for tests. They did a brain MRI. I got the all clear for a stroke, and was told it was likely just a fainting event. You can imagine my relief!
But then a week later I got a call back from the Dr at the stroke clinic telling me that upon closer review a couple of lesions had been discovered on my scan, and that they suspect it could be MS, but more tests would be required for a diagnosis.
So now I wait…the NHS website says average wait time at my local MS clinic is 13 weeks…I’m not really sure how I should be feeling right now. I’m trying not to worry because there’s always a chance it’s not MS of course, but I also don’t want to be too optimistic and get knocked back if it is…
im not really sure what I’m expecting from posting here. I’ve not told many people about what’s going on, and don’t really want to until I know more, so I guess it’s just nice to get it out there and talk about it a bit.
Any tips for coping when in limbo?
