The Day is here!!

I am finally getting to see an MS Neurologist at the VCU MS Clinic! Hopefully she will be a lot of help!!My appointment was originally scheduled for August, but back in February I couldn’t wait that long, so every week I would call to see if someone had an opening sooner, I finally got to May 8!

@stumbler, thank you!

I’m back now, it’s been an interesting trip! She basically said if the Radiologist reports say what she thinks it says, there is an area on my brain that was not as enhanced as the others, that would be my past episode I didnt know about, and that would fulfill the criteria for MS. So I guess shes saying it is. My Neurologist did not send her the films, just the report, so she couldn’t look at it.

@laurianne25 , well, it sounds like progress, although I would never wish MS on anyone.

It’s just a shame that your Neurologist couldn’t supply all your data! What is wrong with these people? 😡

Lol, I know, right? I have a choice to go with her or stay with my current doctor. As much as i like her, i think i will stay where I am because she is kind of far. He is very nice.

Now to finally move on to treatment! I am currently in the midst of an episode, so I’d like to start it ASAP.

I just downloaded yesterday’s visit notes to my Neurologist. She said she agrees with MS diagnosis, and it appears I have RRMS. That I have some residual symptoms, but it was too soon to know if I would return to baseline. So now it is officially Official! Lol.

@laurianne25 , consider that a battle that you have won.

Time to relax and then build yourself up for the next battle.
