I am a 33 year old man who was diagnosed with PPMS in March after finally finding a GP that would send me to a neuro. Bowel and bladder symptoms began 4 years ago after an anxiety attack, GP diagnosed chronic stress. Fatigue progressed, bowels stabilized, urinary issues worsened, sexual dysfunction crept in. Visited several doctors over the past two years and kept getting the same response. Legs went numb in January and quick progression has ensued. Visited three doctors in February and only one gave me a neuro referral. It took the neuro 15 mins to determine I had MS, confirmed by MRI and spinal tap. Since then, everything I've learned about MS has been on my own. Haven't heard from my neuro (I've called half a dozen times w/o response) and my GP's great at giving me referrals, but doesn't have much knowledge of MS. The MS society of Canada is a great resource for general information, but is not much help for personal care. I am looking forward to an upcoming appointment at the MS clinic as my research has resulted in many questions. I am glad to have found this site as it also appears to be a valuable resource. I didn't know about LDN until I arrived here and it has definately peaked my interest.
