New Diagnosis

Hi everyone,

Many months ago i came on this site when a specialist thought i had PPRG and i was started on a weeks trial of steroids which made no diference.

Moving forward i have now been diagnosed withh primary progressive ms. My specialists and myself were going down the wrong road completley. Its a releif to finally get a diagnosis and hopefully treatment for my symptoms although there are no meds that can slow down the progression of ms.

I thought i would post this as it could help others when trying to get a diagnosis when sometimes symptoms and test results are overlooked.

Thanks Christine

Sorry to hear the verdict in the end - and I do hope they are able to relieve at least some of your symptoms. I do know what you mean about the relief at getting a diagnosis and label even when it is a not entirely pleasant one.

Ocrelizumab is looking hopeful for PPMS and it was expected to be submitted for marketing authorisation about now - so fingers crossed that it does turn out to be helpful in slowing the progression.

All the very best to you for the future.

So sorry for that diagnosis you received. Thank you for posting as we all want to learn and these auto immune diseases are so unpredictable.
