my doctor seems to be dragging his feet a bit, over a month in to the diagnosis, no treatment yet, i was supposed to start rebiff, denied by insurance, second option is another drug starts with an E cant remember right now, nothing yet, he doesn't seem to be aggressive enough in getting this started for me, has anyone else had any problems like this??

I havent had a diagnosis yet but Ive definitely had some difficulties with doctors either dragging their feet or just doing the bare minimum required of them. From what ive been reading on here as well as a few other forums....this doesnt seem very uncommon when it comes to chronic illnesses like MS.

Best thing I can suggest (which is what Im currently learning how to do) is to be your own advocate. Push your doctor. You have to stand up for yourself and make sure you get the treatment and attention you need.
