So my second MRI results are back.
The 1st one (brain and spine with contrast) said:
There are a few subcortical white matter high T2 and FLAIR foci with no enhancement which are nonspecific. No additional supra or infratentorial enhancing lesions.
Normal c-spine vertebral alignment and disc appearances with no neural compromise or intramedullary lesions in the imaged spinal cord.
Normal study apart from a few a few non-specific supratentorial white matter lesions of uncertain clinical significance
My latest MRI without contrast just brain said:
Comparison is made with previous MRI dated 20/12/2011.
The small but nonspecific foci of signal abnormality of the cerebral white matter are again noted. There are no new lesions and no lesions with abnormal diffusivity or susceptibility.
I guess no change is good news but I’m still a bit unsure as they didn’t use contrast for my second MRI. How can they look for active/new lesions?
Follow-up review now in Oct with neuro so just feel like I’m hanging in limbo till then and still have symptoms. It’s so frustrating - do I push and see if he’ll do an LP sit and wait it out with no help with my symptoms. Getting my eye looked at today so will see what the ophthalmologist says about that.
First point I’m actually feeling quite down about the whole thing. It’s not that I want to have MS - I guess I just want some answers like everybody else.
