Hi @fiona_sheikh and welcome.

As your diagnosis is so new, you may want to ask any questions that come to mind. We’ll do our best to provide answers.

Hi @fiona_sheikh, sorry about your diagnosis. FYI, I’m 46, have 2 sons and 1 doggy 🙂 I live in Halifax so not too far from Sheffield. I know there are Sheffield meet-ups although I’ve never been to one.

This is a great site to search for particular symptoms, find out peoples reactions to various drugs, and generally not feel so isolated. Any questions just ask away x

@fiona_sheikh Welcome to our exclusive club 😉 this site has been so helpful to me. You can search tags using the magnifying glass in the upper left and there is also a spot to find where the people are from but it looks like your region is well represented and stepping forward.

As stumbler notes you can ask anything on the forum. I found this site that is good for newly diagnosed and can’t answer all questions but may give you ideas of more questions to ask ; p https://www.healthline.com/health/multiple-sclerosis/what-ifs-after-diagnosis?slot_pos=article_2&utm_source=Sailthru%20Email&utm_medium=Email&utm_campaign=multiplesclerosis&utm_content=2019-10-10&apid=29101565#takeaway

I’ve also found the adventures of Dave Bexfield entertaining, educational and inspiring http://msisbs.org/
As well as Roger Southall who posts a monthly blog, a new October one will be out within days…he promises https://www.wholesorts.com/
I also expect new material from Seb to be out any day https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL6ER_vJj2m6LvGc6UsWB1pehBPNtEiaTA
