Afraid to live

I was told in 2003 I had MS. My doctors assured me that I had a mild form of the disease and would most likely never have symptoms.

Fast forward to 2013. I started having bouts of incontinence, clumsiness, extreme fatigue, blurry vision and muscle weakness. Since I also have RA, I assumed that I needed to see my rheumatologist. But at my visit, things went fast.

I was immediately given an MRI. The next morning I had an LP. Within days I was at a neurologist's office, being told I have relapsing/remitting MS. I have been on and off Tecfidera. It helps.
I am consumed with fear of the unknown. I have so many questions but I only get a textbook response.
