What kinda questions should I be asking?

Ok I don't remember if I put this in my profile but I really get stuck when I go into seeing doctors and feel like i freeze and cant remember what he said or I wanted to ask and was wondering other people's thoughts,
So far I've had an MRI and blood test and even before going back for the results (This Friday) I got a letter saying I'm on the waiting list for a clinical neurological test (think that's wat it's called) and I've decided to go private with the test.

Question on heat sensitivity

Im not diagnosed but have gone through mris which were normal, ssep, bloods ect. When i get overly hot by a shower or the weather just a small spot on my heel tingles. I have been told this is from back and disc problems. I have heard heat intensifies ms symptoms and am wondering if it manifests in this manner or if with ms it is much more severe. I dont notice the tingly spot unless I'm paying attention to it, but it still comes on with heat?

Anyone on Myrbetriq for bladder spasticity

Is anyone taking Myrbetriq? I would like to know your experiences with it.. a lot of the reviews online said it didn't do Anything. I know everyone's different, but would like to know your experiences with it. I've tried a slew of other scripts for bladder spasticity (Vesicare being the most recent and absolute worst because I already have chronic constipation and it shut my bowels down). Thanks y'all!

Does anyone have feedback to offer on Ocrevus?

In process of getting approved for this drug. Hope to start next month. I have run out of other options. I've failed many drugs so far and can't take others. I'm the queen of side effects though. If there's 1, I'll get five. Just wondering what people taking it thinks so far. How's it going for you? Any advice to starting out.
