    I’m laying here in bed, too tired to get up, even though all I feel is I have been sleeping. I went into the hospital last Sunday, numb from the waist down, after an mri and spinal tap, was diagnosed with ms. I was put on iv steroids for 4 days l, then released and have an appointment with my doctor Tuesday. Everything has been so crazy, I have no energy, I get sick when I sit up too long, plus major headaches while sitting. I’m supposed to go back to work Monday, but if I continue feeling like this, I don’t see that happening. I’m at a loss of what to think or do right now 🤷🏼‍♀️. Any advice would be great.

    I remember all too clearly that being VERY newly diagnosed. In hindsight the stresses of all the "what if's" made my physical conditions exaggerated. For me i really had to slow down, be extra kind to myself and live just one unpredictable moment at a time. Way easier said than done. You have any "educated" supports in your life?... any ears to bend about the insanity you face? I do and it has been very helpful.

    Hi there, I encourage you to call the National MS Society and speak with an MS Navigator:  800-344-4867.  We can help to answer your questions and get you newly diagnosed information.  We also have a team of MS Navigators who provide support with benefits, employment, and health insurance issues - feel free to ask for the Benefits & Employment Support Team.
