An evening headache often questions the endurance level of a person. Imagine you go through the pain every morning and wake up with a blurred vision and brain fog. Caroline Wyatt is a former BBC news correspondent who is suffering from Multiple Sclerosis. After going through HSCT in early 2017, she dreams of a day without pain.
Career and Professional Life:
After completing print journalism from the City University, London, she joined as current affairs trainee in 1991 in BBC. Miss Wyatt started her career as a business reporter for a Germany based firm.
In October 2007, she worked as a BBC Defense correspondent and had reported American bombing campaign in Iraq. Then in 2014, she switched to religious affairs after seven years. During her time at BBC, she enjoyed a handsome salary which is yet to be made public.
Around 2016, she quit her job at BBC but continued her radio presenting for BBC Radio on the Radio 4 network.
Battle with Multiple Sclerosis!
Once she explained her struggle with Multiple Sclerosis by saying:
You forget words, you forget names. It’s that absolute sense that your body is betraying you.
Her statement explains what she goes through every day she wakes up. She noticed some sympto0ms in 1992, and she hid her illness to BBC fearing her job.
In 2002, the doctor diagnosed her with Clinically Isolated Syndrome (CIS) which was later revealed to be misdiagnosed.
It was in 2016 when she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) which already affected her vision, balance and suffered from brain fog every once in a while. In an article, she mentioned that her diagnosis of MS felt like a life sentence.
Treatment of Multiple Sclerosis!
Her initial drugs failed to stop the progression of the MS. After symptoms started getting worse, she had quit her job.
She then started looking for a cure for MS. She first tried her luck at NHS hospitals in England, but she didn’t qualify for the treatment.
She then had to look for private medication in Mexico and decided to take a risk to have Autologous Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant (HSCT) which is set to cost her €62,000.
She went through grueling treatment in Mexico in early 2017. After months of treatment, she revealed that her brain fog has lifted while some symptoms like migraines have worsened.
She also revealed that it would take at least two years for her to know if HSCT has worked. But for now, she is still battling and hoping for a better future.
Secretive Personal Life, Is She Married?
The former BBC reporter is a secretive person, and her personal life hasn’t made to the public yet. Although she keeps relationship away from the media, she was in a romantic relationship before.
Back in 2016, she revealed that her work came before family and she regretted the fact. She even mentioned that she couldn’t attend her ex-boyfriend’s birthday party due to her busy schedule.
In spite of her revelation about6 her boyfriend, her present relationship status remains ambiguous. As of now, she is not married and doesn’t have a husband. Since Caroline is not married, there is no question about her divorce.
