Hi there, very new to this site. I apologize to head this up with a question and I hope my English doesn’t fail me.
A very long story short, I’ve basically been non-functioning since mid-January (rough patch for about a month prior but I kind of managed). I had a similar bout of symptoms of this severity back in 2012, and my GP suspected MS at the time but didn’t get a MRI until this time. My MRI results came in on Feb 2nd, “cerebral white matter signal changes compatible with clinical diagnosis of multiple sclerosis”. I have a referral to neurology (apparently “urgent”?) but my appointment is in June, I have no idea if things are getting better and I’m borderline desperate for anything resembling relief or something, anything, definitive.
I’d call my mobility “exhausted human noodle”, memory tantamount to a goldfish. I feel I’m in diagnostic limbo with my two doctors (integrative inclusive) and the radiologist being about as committal as “yeah err this, MS, thing… yeah, so go talk to the neurologist.” My GP’s office told me to just keep harassing neurology until someone cancels and I can get penciled in, my GP told me if it’s unbearable at any point I can go to the ER and try to go that route, I just don’t know if this actually qualifies as an emergency. Is there anything the ER can actually do for me? Last time I had symptoms this bad they told me it wasn’t a heart attack or a stroke, to go see my GP. Does anyone have any advice?
Thanks for any help.
