Living with MS can generate lots of questions.
Being diagnosed generates the first batch.
The list can be very long – an article in the Telegraph newspaper today lists 56 questions from someone getting to grips with his MS diagnosis. How many did you have?
Getting your head around being diagnosed can take some time and be a bit of an emotional rollercoaster. More questions…
- Will I adjust?
- How much will MS affect me?
- What can I do to help myself?
- Who will support me?
- Why are my feelings so up and down?
Perhaps, later on, symptoms kick in that you haven’t experienced before. Even more questions…
Perhaps you’ve got a review coming up with your MS health professionals. It’s a good opportunity to ask questions but…
- How can I make the most of the appointment?
- Have I been keeping my MS diary up to date?
- What are my priorities?
