It's been 20 years since my diagnosis. Recently my neurologist retired. In looking for a new one, my insurance company informs me I have to complete another MS work up. Seriously?!? More neuro tests? Lumbar puncture? MRI? Thank you BCBS.
I recently had to give up my job after 17 years and now I can't have any meds unless I go into debt thousands of dollars.
According to my primary, my most recent MRI "only showed one new lesion and that's not bad." So much for hoping he'll be able to help.
Am I alone in this?
Do you have a fear of needles and take medication that requires injection?
