In december last year I woke up with tingly legs. 2 days later I had gone completely numb from the waist down with intense pins and needles in my feet.
A month later i was told i had a lesion on my spine just below my shoulder blades and the cause was unknown and i was diagnosed with CIS. I had a lumbar puncture and further MRIs.
This was back in March so i had presumed my lumbar puncture results were fine.
After seeing my neurologist this week he told me that, my LP was positive for O bands and i fit the criteria to be diagnosed with MS. He said that because I am currently stable giving me an official diagnosis at this time would not be helpful to me.
i will be having MRIS every 12 months and as soon as i have any new symptoms or lesions i will be officially be diagnosed and start treatment. He also told me i am a high risk for this happening. So i am currently in a state of limbo.
i just thought Id share this and see if anyone has similar stories or any support they found helpful.
