I am here with some questions and seeking some advice.
I am a 32 yr old female.
who went to the Dr 3 years ago with blindness in my Lt eye. I was tested for MS with a MRI scan w/wo contrast. VEP test and some blood work. All came back fine with no signs of MS at all. I suffer from 4 or 5 "attacks" a year and so I was Dx Fibro.
I went to the dr the other day Due to the same eye problems and weakness. also have numbess. He sent me to a Neuro Hospital. The Neuro there looked at me and said she along with another Dr there belives its MS. So back to the drawling board.
Geuss all the clinical tests they gave me showed all signs of MS she said plus she looked into my Lt eye and said my Optic Nerve was pale (atypical) ??? So another VEP tests got ordered. (wont get in for that till mid jan) I had another MRI done W/Wo contrast came back clean. nothing that shows any signs of MS. They re did all the clinical tests in office yesterday another Dr cam in and did them and said MS. They ordered a LP I said NO! (scared!) So They ordered blood tests for everything even Lyme. Also a Nerve conductiion test because I have 3 to 4 clicks of tonus in both feet and legs. Also get shooting pains weakness and tingling numbness in legs and feet. Feet sometimes burn bad and or can feel like I am walking on glass.
I get twitches all over my body. I could go on and on I even have the thing when I put my chin down and it feels like an electric curent going down the back of my head and neck into my body.
So what do you think so far?
Can I have MS and have a clean "normal" MRI? How comon is that? To find MS in the spinal fluid but nothing shows on mri?
Thanks for your time..
Its been a long 3 years and I just want to know whats going on.
