I am new here and have a question.
I have been seeing a neurologist (haven't gone back in about
a year) for 3 years. MRI showed lesions in brain but not spine and blood work was fine - A year later another round of MRI's showed the same lesions in my brain - no change = no diagnosis. I did go for a last visit after that and took an MRI of my back that was requested by an ortho due to herniated disc and he noticed a new spot in my cervical spine and requested more mri of that specific area. I have not gone back yet.
I guess my question is how many of you that have been diagnosed, have been diagnosed because of changes in the brain lesions? I have symptoms such as fatigue, memory loss. foggy headed. feeling of quick burning sensations under my feet sometimes. finding it difficult sometimes to articulate - I find it difficult sometimes to hold a meaningful conversation as I forget words or just plain get distracted. I have RLS and was taking baclofen for a while but stopped. My neck, shoulder muscles are always, and I mean always tight and painful. Arms get weak/ I know that I need to go back to neuro and he is supposed to be one of the best in my area - but I thought after 2 years and numerous tests, i would have had a diagnosis and I guess I need some motivation.
