I thought it would be neat for those of us who have been diagnosed to list some helpful tips and advice for those who are newly diagnosed or are searching for answers. Please share your own helpful lists!
1.Be proactive with your healthcare
2.Remember you have every right to ask doc about new meds and/or tests
3.Call your doc if something new or frightening develops
4.Keep a list/diary of symptoms
5.Ask for help when needed
6.Accept help when offered
Now the rest of you need to add to all these things!
I would like to add something I am very guilty of not doing myself,Make sure to ask for all records and copy's of mri's and ect. to keep for your own personnel records.Keep a file of your very own.This may come in handy in the future as you are going thru limboland.
