GF Just Diagnosed with MS, Could use some Advice

This past week my girlfriend went to the Doctor beacuase of very painful muscle cramps and fatigue. The Dr told her he was 99.9% sure it is MS and has scheduled her for an MRI and a Lumbar tap. Unfortionatly the first availible apointment is not til the end of February.

Here is my question. She is a single mother with triplet 6 year olds and has to stay home with one of them because he is disabled. She does not have any medical insurance and now after contacting the Medicaid offices they told her because of the SSI she recieves from her disabled son plus the child support she does not qualify for assistence. Is there any avenues for us to look into to make sure she can get the treatment she needs???

that's really a tough situation. perhaps the neurology office she is going to will have some kind of program for people who can not pay.

it seems a little early to be projecting MS when she hasn't even had any of the diagnostic testing done...
