Hey all So today I was diagnosed with RRMS. I expected MS a year ago when I started having vibrations down my spine and numbness in my hand. So about 9 months after being referred I have now been diagnosed - thankfully to a GP who listened to my worries and didn’t keep going down the carpal tunnel route. So here I am, meeting my MS nurse next month to discuss starting DMDs. I am feeling weirdly relieved at the moment following my diagnosis, maybe because I knew it was coming and limbo land isn’t the nicest of places to be. Looking forward to getting to know you all. :-) x

Suspected not expected! ;)


It's almost a relief sometimes being diagnosed because you finally know you're not going nuts with all these weird symptoms, at last someone has put a name to the beast. Write down all the questions you want to ask, you won't remember when you get there, think long and hard about the dmd's, don your research, read anything and everything (apart from Dr Google!) you can and don't forget to take into account age, lifestyle, type of ms, etc., and be involved, the neuros are not Gods, they don't know everything but your ms nurse is a really good person to develope a relation with. We're always here for a natter, we don't judge, full of useless info, but don't forget with ms there's no such thing as a stupid question, and don't get stressed cos it's no good for the ms😍
