What I Would Tell Someone Newly Diagnosed
Not to lose hope. That there is hope and there is help. And also don't get stuck in one way of treatment. Don't just start taking the medication or doing the nerve blocks or whatever it is that your doctor's prescribing for you.
Ask questions and find out what your options are. There's always new options coming down the road and that's why you should be hopeful because there's research going on, and there's studies that you can get into. And usually it's not one treatment that helps you. It's a variety of treatments. So be open minded to all the things on the table instead of just going with that one thing that one doctor offers you.
