I’m in the US so in a different health system than you…and sometimes that is good and sometimes bad. Basically here if you have insurance or can afford the care you can get it.

Good idea to start a list of your symptoms and compare it to the common list of MS symptoms. In addition keep a diary to demonstrate their frequency. There are many other conditions with similar symptoms so in some ways diagnosing MS is ruling out other conditions. Even once you get an MRI and see the lesions, black holes and atrophy there can be other conditions (such as NMO) that need to be considered.

Doesn’t your system have an advocate system at all so you can’t just be dismissed?
