Sorry to hear about the MS, Pippa. I've had good friends with the same problem. because of its fluctuant nature, especially, it can be tough to handle psychologically. If there is a definite presence of brain atrophy, you need to discuss this directly with the trteating and doagnosing doctor to get absolutely clear about what and why this is, what the outlook is, realistically, and what are your opptions for dealing with it, which ought to include counselling to help you cope.
