I’m new here
I’ve been reading a few of the forums over the last few weeks and you seem like a lovely helpful bunch so I’m looking for some advice.
I’m diagnosed with M.E.
I’m in the process of investigation for MS after admission to A&E which resulted in an optic neuritis diagnosis.
They asked a neurologist to come take a look at me as I also had some weird sensations - crawling sensations on my skin ,patchy numbness with itching etc .
I’ve received the neurologist report but it’s very confusing . Can anyone help me understand what it means please:
“her significant fatigue over the last few years may possibly be part of another neurological problem” (I think this means rather than M.E)
“visual acuity is 6/12”
“gait was normal with encouragement “ (I was in pain with something else but didn’t mention this to the doctor)
“a little caution on some of the power testing but it was normal”
“patchy sensory loss over the left arm and leg
brisk reflexes with 4 beats of clonus in left ankle
I’ve been referred for an MRI of my spine and brain in a couple of weeks time.
What is the doctor saying ?
