I’m still not diagnosed but going by neurological tests so far & family history, the neurologist believes I have MS.
I had my first MRI on Friday but it was only of the brain & without contrast. It was on the report between my GP & neurologist that I needed brain, neck & spine MRI. Now I don’t know if this is the only scan I’m getting.
Am I right in thinking this was a bit of a waste of time just doing a brain MRI because if it is MS, the brain could still be clear due to a lesion(s) on the neck or spine instead?
Did any of you just get a brain MRI in the beginning? I was told it would be May before I had an MRI so I’m maybe guessing perhaps there was a cancellation for a brain MRI so they gave me this in the mean time, but why not just do the full scan then lol. I guess my fear is if the brain is clear then they won’t bother investigating things further! Plus I thought having the scan with contrast was much better?!
I’d appreciate any feedback & how it was for you guys with the diagnosing process.
