has anyone else found that since being diagnosed with MS that their doctors arent anywhere near as help as they were before?
more and more my GP, even then doctors at the hospital have just been overwhelmed by the fact i have MS and not bothered to investigate and symptoms i bring to them. they all seem too scared to act or end with 'well it must be your MS so speak to your neuro' (who btw i have met once and not seen since - near a year ago now).
ive had difficulty swallowing for about a year and a half now, (before i had the optic neuritis that alerted the hospital to my MS) and its just been completely over looked, i got a rash on my face at the same time and all my GP ever says is that he cant see it?!?
im hoping to have this cleared up soon, im seeing a new doctor,
i'd just like to hear this isnt happening to anyone else, dealing with MS can be hard at the best of times, doctors being scared of you is the last thing you want
