How often do you think MRIs on the brain and spinal cords should be done in someone with no diagnosis of MS yet. My last ones were in June, and they all came back negative, though the spinal ones weren't done with contrast and had motion blur over the very area that needed to be visualized.
I've had a lot of new symptoms since the last ones were done, including leg weakness, spasms and spasticity, a banding sensation around my ribs, and tinnitus in my left ear. I also had a negative LP in October (though it did show higher than normal levels of albumin.)
Do you think I should request a repeat on the MRIs now since it's been six months? Or wait a few more months? How quickly do changes in MRIs show up anyway?

Negative MRIs + Negative LP + Positive symptoms = A lot of confusion + A ton of frustration!
