How do my other health issues affect my MS and vice versa?

There is no question that MS adds a new wrinkle to managing your overall health.  Just how MS factors into that picture is a puzzle your doctor needs to solve.  For example if you have thyroid issues and MS, is your fatigue related to the level of your thyroid medication or your MS?  Is the numbness in your feet from your diabetes or your MS?  How will the medications or treatments you take for an existing condition affect your MS?  Ask these questions and work with your medical team to figure out the answers.  It may take some time to sort it out.  In these cases, it is all the more important that your general physician and/or specialist works with your neurologist to coordinate your care.
