Multiple sclerosis : First, I wish you will get better and get over this disease, and that can't be achieved without specialists supervision, neurologists and other physicians, and taking medications prescribed according to your stage / severity of the disease, if questioning the diagnosis, get a second opnion. If really anxious / depressed seek psychiatric help, but don't just stay put, good luck
