I can't comment on the health issues as that is between you and your physicians. I would talk with your dean however and discuss your concerns. Good luck. If there are those who have read this who have dealt with having MS in med school, please post, or, if you wish to send something directly to the OP, send it to me (Tildy) by PM.So, I have been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. My treating neurologist told me that he doesn't know what fuctions will go for first, and in what time frame. Could be in the short- or long-run. My question is: should I even "bother" going to med school? Medicine is my dream, but if I can't do any specialty e.g. because my dexterity or my eye sight will be gone before I know it, is there even any sense in me attending med school?
Thanks so much in advance for answering my question, I really appreciate it.
