Ok, now i don't know if I'm to be frustrated or furious or just keep waiting... my neuro's office called, made me a followup appt for May 23 with him... said the MRI's were nothing abnormal... 'course he's the kind of doc who'd come back at me that they were "normal" for MS, showing him what he wanted and not tell the nurse squat. So be it... in the meantime, 6 wks out of any appt time... he's one busy busy neuro. Then again by that time another symptom may pop up or get worst too!
The flipside is that I"m wondering what do I do if he says there's no lesions? Anyone here have experience with having MS without showing lesions on MRI's? He's concluded MS TWICE with me now over the past two years but may not be able to detect a lesion. I've read that about 1-5% of the MS population doesn't show lesions on MRI's... sort of sucks though cos it keeps the dx in a state of wondering what's up... nothing else is panning out though, not Lyme, not peripheal disease, not diabetes, not the whole host of a dozen other things he tested me for.
I really hate the waiting game ... in the meantime, I still stumble, everything still goes numb, vision still blurs, headaches still keep happening, pains still shoot thru various areas of my body, the room moves when I don't, and the rest of the list keeps happening like clockwork... patience. Man it's my lousiest virtue!
