a bit overwhelmed? So sorry you find yourself newly diagnosed. First step, deep breath. You can only take one day at a time.
Ask your neuro for copies of all your test results, blood test, MRI report, whatever they got. Keep a file for yourself. Maybe you were already tested for B12 levels or viruses, in order to make dx exclusions. Don't be afraid to call and ask questions. Especially if you're questioning your diagnosis.
Start thinking about our life...your daily activities, what you eat and drink, how you live. How can you take control and make life a healthier, healing experience. Giving yourself good nutrition and exercise is a great start. Get rid of as many stressors and annoyances as possible.
MS is unbelievably confusing for patients and doctors. You are certainly not alone in being overwhelmed. Reading on these boards gave me and my husband a place to start in comprehending his new reality.
best to you-
