Waiting before diagnosis

This is the place to ask questions if you have symptoms that suggest MS, but aren't yet diagnosed.

Waiting before diagnosis

Postby MSyborg » Tue Feb 21, 2017 10:05 am

Should I wait until healthcare becomes available without cost(which is like 3-4 months) to get a diagnosis? It was around late October last year when it started having these MS like symptoms.

i don't even have a sense of all the factors that would play into that decision for you msy - but whatever you decide, in the meantime i would suggest you consider doing all you can to optimize health. options: evaluate your daily routine against basic public health recommendations, see where improvements can be made, and prioritize according to those which look most relevant to avoiding ms or slowing progression. my 2c! gives you something to do while waiting if that ends up being the route you choose :)
take control of your own health
pursue optimal self care at least as actively as a diagnosis
ask for referrals to preventive health care specialists eg dietitians
don't let suboptimal self care muddy any underlying diagnostic picture!
