Have you tried any European countries, they tend to speak English well. In in Scotland and we’d love to have you but the UK home office isn’t the friendliness at the moment. What about Ireland?

I don’t think the US would block you due to MS and some areas of the country speak English well ;-0 some areas I can barely understand them with their accents although now with national news and broadcasting as what everyone sees the accent of the country is centering close to what you hear as native in Chicago which isn’t too far south of where I live near St Paul/Minneapolis. The states to the far south and east I find most difficult.

Where ever you go consider the strength of their MS community and Neurologists. There are hotbeds of research and good Neuros in some areas. In our area we have the U of M (MN in Minneapolis) supported by some very good peripheral clinics as well as Mayo in Rochester MN just an hour and a half south of the Twin Cities. They are world-reknown for many health care issues. There are also good Mayo clinics and hospitals throughout the US so check on that in an area you are interested in. If you are opposed to snow and cold you may not like my area ;-0 Then again MS is most prevalent in a set of states within the US and while you may think that is a reason to avoid them it is also a reason to go there once you are diagnosed as then the medical community is there to support you and has experience.

I’ve been seeing good stuff come out of Ohio which is pretty rural and a bit south of me so the climate improves but still has a true Winter. Big cities will generally have Neurologists that specialize in MS. Aaron Boster is down there and his you tube videos have been enlightening to me. He got into MS Neurology as a Medical area in school due to his family experience with an Uncle. So he is passionate.

Also keep Canada in mind. From traveling there we found English was the standard except in areas we honeymooned in near Quebec. Beautiful but many of the locals preferred French as they are dual language in that province. Nationalized health care so you would need to confirm you area and coverage will respond to MS issues promptly. That is a complaint I have heard from someone near Toronto. It seemed she was giving up on care.

Good luck!
