Sarah:
If you think you may have MS, you need to see a neurologist, but even after you have a diagnosis, some of the symptoms that can arise are so subtle or only you notice them, or they might not seem like a big deal to your doctor. If they are impacting you, if you think it’s a problem, you need to speak out, and don’t be afraid because there may be a medication that can help those symptoms.

With cognitive dysfunctions especially, I know I knew there was something going on with my brain. I knew I was not thinking as well and was not processing information, and nobody else really noticed it other than maybe I was forgetting things or I wasn’t as articulate as I normally was. I knew something was wrong and I insisted on, even my neurologist didn’t think it was an issue, but I insisted on seeing a neuropsychologist who was then able to help me work through all of that.

So it went from being something very scary to something very manageable, and I think you need to be aware of that with these subtle symptoms that if it’s impacting your life, you need to be an advocate and insist on getting followed up.
