I Was Told By My Neurologist Today That I Do Have MS. Finally!

I was diagnosed originally in 2015, but I was non-symptomatic. My neurologist did not want to fully diagnose me yet. When I was originally referred to him it was for migraines I began to have and of an abnormal brain result.

I don't know if I'm ready for treatment and infusions

Then I was ordered another MRI of the brain and had a spinal tap and there is when they said I had MS. I have been seeing my neurologist every year and today he asked if I am interested in the injection treatment for MS. My only symptoms still are migraines and my cognitive thinking is a little flawed I have noticed, but I don’t know if I am ready for the medication treatment and the infusions. I do remember when I had two infusions when I was first in treatment.

I want to fight this

I want to fight this. I want to live a healthier lifestyle. I don’t want the disease to define me. I want to be in control of me. I have accepted I have MS, but I want to be a better me because of it.
