I just got diagnosed. I’m 47. I’ve been a diabetic for 27 years. I have heart disease (3 heart stents). I get shots in eyes for retinopathy. I’m not convinced the eye drugs haven’t caused this progressive-aggressive MS.
Hi Chris, I developed degenerative bone disease and glaucoma. I find that doctors are very tunnel visioned so I have to educate each one one about my comobidities. I tend to find a doctor and network and stay there so that the history is all in one place. I hate changing doctors but when you don’t have a good fit, it’s really important to find a new doctor.
I absolutely agree about finding the right neuro. I’ve been with mine for over twenty years and, after moving to a new area, I traveled 3 hours each way to continue seeing her. The right neuro makes a world of difference.
