Do people really understand the symptoms

Hi folks. I was diagnosed with MS 2018.
I’ve recently retired on health grounds and have just been granted PIP which is a great help.
I’m very reluctant to visit anywhere where I dont know where the nearest loo is.
Nightmare in the current climate !!! (covid19)
Mobility is a problem re walking and balance.
Hate this having been very active!

@david_elliott , incontinence and mobility problems is a double-edged sword!

But, don’t suffer in silence. There is a lot of help available. So, contact your MS Nurse and ask to be referred to Continence Services.

The following may be an interesting read for you :-

A referral to Neuro-physiotherapy for an assessment will also be useful.
