Ive posted a couple of times as im in limboland currently and I just had to ask if anyone could give me some advice or shed light on this. I saw my brain scan at the last Neuro consultant appointment last Monday ( have had a few MRIs over the last 19yrs), anyway I noticed the large white patch on the scan which he was referring to had significantly increased in size since my last scan which was about 7 odd years ago. It previously was the size of a 50pence piece, its more like three times that size now? Anyway what I want to ask is the size of the damgaged area significant to physical symptoms experienced? As I think im coping reasonably well at the moment, not that Im sure its that well at all... But another thing the consultatnt said was "Do you live in a house with stairs", I mean what is he trying to say, that I wont be walking soon?... He is sending me for another MRI of the brain, spine, cervical and lumber puncture, before diagnosis but says hes a MS specilaist Neuro and he thinks its very definate that I will be diagnosed with MS. This is really playing on my mind and I cant get his words out of my head now... its really scared me and I just would appreciate your honest opinions on this please as I know you guys have a wealth of knowledge and experience on here.
