Hi guys,
I was diagnosed in 2014 and luckily was put on tecfidera within 6 months so no serious symptoms yet. I’m counting my lucky stars. I presented unusually with actually a mental health condition that didn’t fit in with any reasons for why it happened. So they did an mri and discovered brain lesions. I’m feeling well but grappling with the idea of moving abroad while I’m well. Seems like life is for the living right? Anyone else presented in that way?

This whole site seems like a great idea, I definitely need to vent now again especially when I get so exhausted from normal life that I have to sleep 12hrs to recover!

Hello @elizbella, welcome. So you haven’t been ill since the original episode that led to diagnosis? Looks like Tec is working a treat for you, nice one. If you feel well and healthy, then definitely make the most of it. Where are you thinking of moving? You’d need to consider how you’d get your meds. Yes, this site serves many purposes for many people, it’s a great source of comfort, companionship and advice, so glad you found it 🙂

@vixen thanks for your reply 🙂 I’m already getting my meds posted to the UK from Ireland. Although I need to ask my neurologist about the EU Cross borders medical directive which I discovered today! They won’t prescribe it here but I think I should be able to use any EU prescription (for now). Do you know anything about this? I was thinking of moving to a Scandinavian country

Hi @elizbella and welcome.

It’s not unusual to be investigated for an unrelated symptom, when characteristics of MS are seen. Maybe a lucky break, to get the MS managed at the earliest juncture.

Hmmm, moving abroad? As long as your healthcare requirements are met, then why not?
