Hi there. I have no idea but i am bumping this up to page 2 for you!!

You could click on Sticky Post (Rizzo) and read ‘A brief beginner’s guide to the brain and MRI’ you may find it helpful. Its at the top of new diagnosis and before diagnosis page.

Do you have a follow-up appointment booked with a neurologist? They are the specialists and in all fairness, someone professional should be discussing this with you and explaining it

It sounds like you have only one lesion. So I dont think you would get a Dix of ms with that. They might however decide to MRI your spine and send you for lumbar puncture. MOYNA xxx

I agree with Moyana were the results posted to you or via your gp? a follow up neuro appt is def needed here and have clarification of the results for you in the context as a patient and what their plan is… em x
