Hi, i have lesions in spine and brain and have had one ‘episode’ were my legs went numb back in January. Neuro says I have 80-90% chance its MS and if it happens again I will be diagnosed. When I last saw the neuro a couple of weeks ago he said next step is a Lumber Puncture.
I have spent a week or two thinking and then the appointment came through, which I have now cancelled. Am I mad???
The way I see it is that I am so well now, my body feels great (apart from pain in left eye which I am seeing an opthamologist soon). I just dont want the worry of the Lumber puncture, from what I can tell it may give me an answer, but if I am well at moment they why go through it. If it ain’t broke don’t try to fix it!! attitude I suppose. I sometime think doctors are too keen
I feel I am lucky, I have been well looked after and throughly investigated (something I know a lot of people arn’t lucky enough to be able to say). I feel I have been given a heads up about me having MS and it will always be in the back of my mind, but I am well now and want to enjoy my life…
Head in the sand??? yeah definately!!!
