I am amazed that with white matter lesions you did not get more testing to rule out MS!! The doctor just said wait and watch or what?
It does sound like MS. Now there are other things that can cause white matter lesions - but that with the fatigue really sounds like you need to go agressively to either rule in or out MS. If it is MS then there are treatments to slow it down and there are meds that help with the fatigue.
By the way - fatigue is frequently the first symptom for many later diagnosed with MS. Assert yourself here and get some answers. The other one tends to be vision problems (ON).
I am assuming your current neurologist is now requestiong more testing? If not you need to be asking what he/she is doing to investigate this further. Let your doctor know that you urgently want answers and treatment for your fatigue.
Good luck with that.
You may want to get yet another opinion. Try to find a neurologist who specialized in MS. You need a FULL neuro exam. not yes or no to a bunch of questions. He or she needs to test your reflexes, balance, sensory respones etc. Even your new neuro sounds a bit cavalier as to really looking at what is going on. Good luck!!!!
I'm sorry honey, I don't know what all that MRI lingo means!!! But I do know that a neurologist should be able to tell you if the are still active or not. Apparently they do appear brighter on the MRI when they are active, or so I have been told.
It sounds like you still have a lot more tests to go through before you truly know what's going on, keep your head up, and ask them to repeat that mono test. Remember, legions can be caused by something as simple as a fever, your MRI results are not necessarily indicative of an MS diagnoses, and fatigue can be a symptom of so many other things.
