Hi to everyone out there, hope you have had a good Sunday.
In a nutshell, I have been in limbo for three years. I used to run and did the Marathon in 07 and then I started to trip up. I have a weak right leg and then right arm. I now have difficulty walking too far but at least I can still get around with a stick and a leg brace so I try to remain positive.
I have had 3 MRIs which show lesions on brain and spine, clear lumbar, nerve and EMG showed only carpal tunnel and bloods showed underactive thyroid. Neuro said is most likely PPMS but is reluctant to formally diagnose because a diagnosis it is for life and everything changes. i.e insurance , driving etc. so back again in 6 months.
I work full time and have told them I am being investigated for MS but we are undergoing restructure and I know if I were confirmed disabled I would have some protection, I am wondering now, as I haven’t been formally diagnosed, can I still be protected under DDA? Does anyone know?
Many thanks and best wishes.
