My life with MS : the highs, lows and more importantly the humour
Monday, 17 June 2013
Now for those of you who don't know, the reason that MRIs are used for diagnosing MS is to check for "scars" on the spinal cord. By the time the results finally found their way to the neurologist desk I had already decided that there was scars and I had MS despite the lack of proof. So much so in fact that it almost seemed pointless being told I had MS by the neurologist.
The benefit of this appointment though is that a plan of action can be put in place. I met my nurse and treatments were discussed. It would be months before I started on my medication but it all began that day.
