Warning...do not link all symptoms to MS

Hi all Without going into some very personal details, I have been ill for a while and just waiving it aside, apportioning it to having MS, therefore it must be MS symptoms. Things came to a head a couple of weeks ago and I ended up in A&E a week ago. In a nutshell, I have a large “mass”. Nothing to do with MS at all…stupid me. Anyway, I just wanted to say, don’t put everything down to the obvious. Check it out…the surgeon I saw told me that it’s too easy for people with chronic health conditions to attribute every ailment to it, sometimes mistakenly. Xx

Crikey Catherine - that sounds scary :frowning:

I hope it’s something easily fixed.

Thanks, Karen. Don’t mind admitting…am terrified. Xx

Hello my friend, I agree totallly with you. The same thing has happened to me. I do feel that chronic illness is enough alone, and far too often we cope by managing invisible symptoms day by day, and keep quiet about so many other aches, pains, etc it is a way of coping and staying positive its the only way, but when something else appears we feel guilty overloading those around us and feel it is better ignored!

I give you my best wishes, and if you would like some support through this then please dont hesitate to contact me x

Hi Mrs H, yes I’ve heard stories before of people putting it all down to MS… but so hard isn’t it esp as fatigue is so bad for many of us but also the first sign that something else is wrong!

I really hope you can get this sorted quickly and easily.

Thinking of you,
