Time to throw the ball out of the pram !

I'm looking at the Aubagio tablets wondering whether to take the plunge, shall I take it tonight or the morning, after 3 years of uncertainty and then a diagnosis I'm heading into yet more uncertain territory and quite frankly I'm ready to throw my ball out of the pram.

Since returning to the Uk I seem to have spent more time waiting for appointments than getting any nearer a diagnosis. I was finally diagnosed with Relapsing Remittent Multiple Sclerosis in the middle of September and at first ...

Advise very much appreciated


I've suspected MS for a couple of years now, but when I mentioned it to my doctor last year he shrugged it off and said that my symptoms were caused by my under-active thyroid, so once that was stabilised he would look in to the MS possibility more.

My symptoms are: neurological issues, ...
