Get yourself a medical team. Some people are afraid of getting the diagnosis, and doctors are reluctant to give it because it’s notoriously difficult to diagnose, and impossible to give a prognosis. Your MS is your MS, and is different to everybody else’s. Get to know. Become an expert in your own illness.
Get a neurologist, but don’t expect her to cure you. But, if you are officially on her books, she can open doors for you, with regard to benefits, blue badges, medical trials, and, when they find the magic bullet, it will be a good idea to be on an official list of those who need curing!
Find out about MSn services in your area. Yoyu can get access to specialist nurses, physiotherapy, hydrotherapy, dietary advice, and a ssocial worker. Use these people. Sometimes, they can help you. Don’t forget to make friends with your GP, but only bother her when it’s serious and when it can’t be dealt with by a cup of tea and a chat with a friend.
Your medical support team is, or could be, very important. Treasure it.
