hi i went to the doctor complaining about a limp. actually my toes on my right foot except the large toe are all numb. I had an mri and because I had 6 lesions on my brain and I was 42(female) i was diagnosed with ppms. I have had no other symptoms except im up 3 times a night to use the toilet. I have no pain in my leg/foot just this daft limp. I have had no other signs of ms. The nuero said because I was a female over 40 and because i had 6 lesions in his opinion I have ppms. What do others think?
From reading this and earlier posts -- your speech patterns might indicate that you are not an American? British, perhaps?
The only reason that is an issue is that doctors in Europe tend to use somewhat different criteria to diagnose MS than American doctors. Or if not criteria, then different reactions to signs and symptoms than American doctors.
I don't know that an American doctor would so quickly decide that you have ppms, for example...but it does sound like you have MS. As for the problem with urination -- there are meds you could be taking for that, that might lessen the need for so many nightly visits. You should ask about that at your next visit.
